Hi Christopher,
Very interesting, thank you! So you'd say it's not math unless the understanding is present?
That wasn't meant to be a description of "math" so much as a description of the process many people have for beginning their understanding of it. The point I was trying to make was that some forms of understanding often come after proficiency in the process.

Gambarimashyo!

Re: Power Proud

I think much of the stuff that is taught in "math" classes in school, would be called arithmetic by mathematicians. But I don't know exactly where arithmetic becomes algebra.

Edit: I looked it up: As soon as symbols like x and y are used, it becomes algebra.

But still, using the Pythagorean theorem and algebra to calculate something, is not as mathematical as proving the Pythagorean theorem.
