    Just as they expected …..math is just there to make school harder….

    Oy, that old canard again.

    The commutative property isn’t even universal in math; just try to say that 5 – 2 is the same as 2 – 5 and see how far you get.

    Now you’re talking higher math skills, leaves me out. Never liked it

    Too many Liberal Arts Majors doing our governmental budgets.

    And an economist is offended when reality doesn’t follow the model.

    Economists think the real world is a special case.

    I was always told that was Buttercup flowers, not Dandelion flowers…

    The commutative property applies to operations. The dandelion – butter relationship is an equation, not an operation. Also, the inverse of “dandelions reflect implies likes butter” is “likes butte implies dandelions reflect,” not “butter reflects implies likes dandelions.”

    But can the mathematics graduate prove that reality exists?

    As an extreme case…such as irreversible thermodynamic processes…such as combusting gas in a car engine…you CAN’T reverse it,ie, take the various vapors and reassemble them into crude oil, for instance.

    Like a forest, or a meadow paved over. That’s how WEALTH is created…but it DOESN’T work in reverse.

    Ouch, I’ll pass. My head hurts. Hate math, always did, always will. Why I ever went into engineering is a wonder. While the geeks I worked with drooled with excitement to bang on a calculator/keyboard for hours in a day, I looked at it as a neccessary evil, as much fun as brushing my teeth. Never got a sense of accomplishment over solving math problems and equations….just blahh.

    The existence of reality cannot be proven, only implied.
