With python, teaching and studying mathematics, physics, chemistry,

Python is one language which can be used to solve problem and in quick time.

focus must be, not to cram the books and gain marks.
Learning must not stop, unfortunately, now days, the curriculum of schools,
universities etc are not meant to produce leaders, but to make followers
