1. The Basics: Numbers, Symbols, Words
These notes are from the 2018 version of the course. A significantly expanded new version will be made available once the 2019 course starts. 🤓
In this lecture we look at how numbers and symbols are used in English sentences to make readable, sensible, and correct mathematical statements. We identify common issues and offer ways to fix them. These notes are intended to complement the presentation I gave today. They were written jointly with Irida Altman.
