    Even back of the envelope reasoning will be automated eventually. Praveen Paritosh, one of my alums, did an elegant model of it as part of his Ph.D. thesis. There's a lot of research to do before "number checkers" take their place along side spell checkers in everyday life, but it's coming. An interesting challenge will be to design them so that they help bolster, instead of dull, the critical thinking skills of their users!
