Abstract

Let’s say that you are a high school student, studying primarily the humanities and social sciences. Perhaps, in your middle and high school years, your experience of mathematics was something like that of the brave student Molesworth in a book called Down with Skool (as you can make out, Molesworth can’t spell very well). Molesworth is at this moment approaching his teacher with his opinions about algebra.
