It is possible to design circuits without much maths or proofs, it's how I started many years ago, it's enough to build simple filters and do some analogue maths functions. At the age of 12, I hadn't heard of Maxwell, Fourier or Laplace. I have since learnt about those during my degree, and have since forgotten them, you only really use that stuff for in-depth design/analysis. I don't do that every day but I can refer to it if I need to. Having learnt it in the past helps a lot, if I were coming at it with no previous knowledge it would be quite daunting! Mathematical proofs are very useful, knowing how to derive proofs comes in handy when you need to derive something which there isn't a proof for. Plug and Chug is what you end up doing for the most part, it's a waste of time to start from first principles every time. But, it is important to go through the pain of it a few times so you know how to get there when there's no Plug and Chug method.
