I think the choice of the term "mathematics" is too broad.

I don't see how e.g. knowledge of trigonometry could be helpful in the engineering discipline of programming. Or knowledge of how to resolve a set of linear equations. Or knowledge of differentials and integrals. Received on Thu Jun 08 2006 - 02:21:24 CDT
