Large fonts

Finally, in common with many sites, the use of very large fonts can sometimes cause wrapping and other problems to occur. In these circumstances, the site should still be usable, but appearance may be somewhat compromised.

  1. The power of exponentiation, equation #3 has a typo.

    (n^m)^p is incorrectly shown as n^(np) instead of n^(mp)

  2. In your explanation of Euler’s Number in the section on What Difference Does It Make the graph to show the slipe at point x shows instead the average slope from x to a random point above x defined by the red triangle. Wouldn’t the point x slope actually be the tangent to point x and why wouldn’t that be explained more clearly? Everything else was amazing in the space provided!

  3. Thank you for the reply. I still wonder why you wouldn’t just use the tangent on its own? Is that to illustrate the use of limits in the evolutuin of the mathematics?

    • So you are familiar with the concept of tangent to a curve. Not everyone who reads this article will be. I have already introduced a lot of terms and concepts and there is no need to add one more if I can tell my story perfectly adequately without. I understand where you are coming from and would encourage you to write your own article explaining tangents to curves. I agree that would be a useful thing to read. My article was already over 6,000 words. Peter

  4. Thanks Peter! I couldn’t begin to write that paper!
    I struggled with calculus but learned about inflection points on curves in high school and reviewed them with an economics professor in college. You’re article was great. It woke up a part of my brain I hadn’t entertained for a while!
