Understanding that Math evolved and grew out of Logic, which grew out of Linguistics is vital to understanding the need for Number, Value, Measurement, and Word.

This is a Language and it must be treated like a Language for many people to understand it. Throwing non-number people into Mathematics without the Language will result in more confusion than comprehension.

A mark of the Oxymoron “Bad Teacher.”

In Math, we are Defining and then we are Measuring.

In Math, we are measuring 3 things:

- Value
- Space
- Change

Upon measuring these three things, Balance must always be maintained. No matter what. The Balance is “weighing” or Matching the “Copy” against the “Original” (Mother Nature).

This is all about Precision.

In Linguistics, we learn how words Define and “Give Shape” to Feeling and Comprehension.

In Logic, we learn how the Comprehension moves and Grows and changes.

In Mathematics, we measure the space, value, definition, and change of that Growth.

In Physics, we study the Laws of that Change.

All of Math begins with Words and Definitions.

For this, you will require the Mathematical Notation:

This is the Language of Math as Defined prior to beginning.
