While having the correct tools to apply is important, it does not replace critical thinking; anyone can copy down a formula like F=MA, but without understanding the basic premise of how the parts relate conceptually, and what they mean, one will have a very difficult time of applying them effectively. Being able to rationalize abstract concepts, as well as the relationship between ideas and constants is the basis for letting formulas and equations do the work for you, and not the other way around.
