    if "import math" is used instead of "from math import *" the functions of the math module will have to be called as methods of the math class (excuse me if I accidentally misuse terminology... I'm just reading "how to think like a computer scientist" and try to apply the concepts I learned in the book), for example, instead of writing sqrt() one would have to write math.sqrt() and so on...
