Composition: Arithmetic is futile

  1. Please watch from 0:00 to 1:23



    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?
