Math vs Maths ... and more

A new page: Math vs Maths ... and more

Good page? Any mistakes? Do you have your own thoughts on this?

And any more examples for the second half would be appreciated.

hi MathsIsFun

Good page.  I cannot think of any more at the moment, but I'll keep thinking.

Nothing directly mathematical about the following, but here is my favourite (favorite ... no that's not it yet, read on)

Hi;

Interesting page. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally, what do they use for the other two? Boiled Or Denatured Makes Alcohol Sweeter? Baked Edibles Do Make Ants Salivate? Not quite as good as Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

How about calling Math or Maths just M?

Funny! But a good point, it would be nice to have one for BODMAS and BEDMAS.

Hi MathsIsFun,

The page is absorbing.

Good work!
