    Here's a nifty little item for students of maths and related disciplines to keep at the back of the mind.

    Neat little primer I'll use for my students :-)

    Find math symbolism one of the more confusing points of math--and to be honest mathmaticians have created some of the problem such as the many ways to expression combinations and permeatations (P(n,m) or nPm, similarity between math logic symbolism and other forms as multiple meanings of "+" as "or" or addition and the x10 versus E (that calculators use). The machine language terminology is a mess as well.
