Goal: Complete a short essay on my greatest accomplishment achieved. I have not achieved it yet, but my greatest accomplishment will be the language of mathematics.

I thought about this last night,

"The difference between arithmetic in algebra & arithmetic in real life is that the consequences of arithmetic in algebra didn't matter."

I can express relations numerically, but to put those relations in words? I struggle.

I thought about presenting an equation (of nature!), & then logically deducing it towards the end of my paper. Like an "Oh, that's why!" factor.

Thoughts?
