In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
I'm not on there, but the problems at TopCoder are really hard and interesting to solve. Such sites are nice as they take the emphasis off of syntax and focus more on algorithms and math.
I have an account on both of those, I think, but I do not use them. Also have a SPOJ account.
