This paper is a discussion on some R. Hersh's ideas. I do not deny the importance of intuition and plausible reasoning in mathematics. However, I lay stress on rigor and proofs especially in mathematical education, because often in mathematics, "it is easier to prove than to see". Doing rigorous mathematics at school is important as a means to train students’ intuition in dealing with mathematical abstract concepts.
