This link is a little too advanced for Calc tests

and a little too elementary for grad work,

but you should all look at it anyway ---

every student who has to write math, be it exams or proofs,

will find something you should keep in mind.

And this is a simple, basic,

American Standard English grammar.

If you can't say it with precision,

you don't understand it.

---Jim Green (physics prof)

Imprecise language is the mark of

a master of persuasion and a novice of mathematics.
