    In calculus that's where the fun begins. You get to divide my zero and go to infinity and do all sorts of math magical stuff.

    MATH = a group of related sciences including algebra, geometry, and calculus concerned with the study number, quantity, shape, and space in their interrelationship by using specialized notation ! LOLOLOLOL LIKE I RELLY KNEW THAT!!! && GOD IS GOOD AT EVERYTHING PEANUT

    Mathematics is the abstract study of topics encompassing quantity structure, space, change, and other properties;[6] it has no generally accepted definition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics

    @Kainui calculus does not allow you to divide by zero. but i agree with you, it is where math gets interesting

    @Mathmuse Yes, technically you don't divide by zero in calculus, but it's pretty close to it. Practically speaking, finding the instantaneous rate of change is pretty close to "dividing by zero" in a defined way. To me, math was more like grammar lessons up until calculus where we actually got to flex our minds and create things out of infinitesimals and optimize things. In a sense, this was the fun part, and any time you deal with something in calculus you are always dealing with infinity in some form or another and I think it really made me love math when before that I didn't care much at all for it. There's a very negative mindset towards math, so it seems foolish for anyone in here to be arguing against someone saying something enthusiastic about math such as, "You get to divide by zero" when really you're "Dividing by x as x approaches 0" as it's splitting hairs when most people here are saying "Math sucks" and seems to be should be encouraged to see how math can become something very interesting and philosophical. Hell, e^ix=cosx+isinx is easily shown by comparing their representations as _infinite_ term polynomials. That's damn cool, if someone showed that to me in algebra 1 I would have been curious to find out how and might have made better grades in the past.

    @Kainui There really is no arguement or splitting hairs, and any amount of enthusiasm doesn't mask the fact that it's not the case; calculus doesn't involve division by zero. 'Pretty close' is just that, and calling people disappointments or foolish won't make it so.

    math is the science of numbers and their operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations, and generalizations.
