Because both math, and looking at a living fire-flame, have been
around a very, very l..o..n..g time, and contain principles that
will probably be UNCHANGED thoughout all time.

When I look at jets on a gas stove, I often think of cave-people, gathering around a living and ever-changing-of-position flame. (OK -- my gas-jet flame is blue...their's was yellow, mine is sort of smallish, their's probably MUCH bigger...but it's the SAME, flickering, dancing flame -- that can either be life-giving, or -- if one is not careful -- life-taking!) Math may have started slightly later -- but not much. Ideas like "2 plus 2
equal 4", are unchanged and unchangeable. Looking at them, one sees history, as well as math. Or at least, I do....

REVIEWING ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA, 9th YEAR MATHEMATICS, by ISIDORE DRESSLER, was the math book I used in school. Looking at the copy I have now purchased, I realize it was written in 1949 -- which was before I went to school! However, as math is timeless, this shouldn't make too much difference. It is the BEST algebra book I have ever come across!

This is not a small thing. When I was in 9th grade, Math was my LEAST favourite subjcct. I had totally HATED it since first grade!
And now, algebta was making it even worse! I mean, I had always excelled in English and writing. Letters of the alphabet had always been my FRIENDS! But now, in algebra, not only numbers were being used -- but letters of the alphabet, too! These letters of the alphabet had turned "traitor"! My "friends" had somehow joined hands with NUMBERS -- my "enemies"! :( I was very, very sad and confused....

However, I had a very good math teacher in 9th Grade.
