Things We Don’t Explain:   that when we say f(x)  we’re not multiplying F by X.   Yes, I know, I know, we told you that letters and parentheses and all that stuff meant to multiply — but you’re supposed to figure out that in *this* case, it means something different.

Mid-term tonight. Suffering from “well, I know how to do stuff, but will I know the names of the things? Will I know whatever *stuff* we’re supposed to know about it?”   (Okay, that Big Fat Thirty that I got on the last exam I took is aggravating my inner Hermione, even though I Did That On Purpose So People Could WRite About It In My Biography When I Get Famous And Die.)
