This post is going to be slightly in jest. I’m serious, but I haven’t seriously looked into it.
– Can we stop teaching elementary children to use the “x” sign as multiplication? How about if we teach them to use a dot instead? It’s not only confusing because so many continue to use the x sign into middle-school when they’re introduced to algebra, but then we teach students X means something completely different when we’re dealing with vectors.
– While we’re at it, can we standardize the division sign as just a number over another number, like a fraction?
