Pythagorean Soliloquy by Total Gadha - W e dne sday, 31 De ce m be r 2008, 02:07 PM

Years ago, my Italian language teacher and my classmates learning Italian used to question me how I could pick up the language so fast. “Perche sono un insegnante di matematica ,” was my standard answer. That would leave them baffled. What was the relation between language and mathematics? Little do my classmates or many other students, especially our C AT aspirants, understand that language and mathematics are the two sides of the same coin; both consist of symbols connected through logic. And more often than not, even the logic they follow is the same. The symbols for both were gradually developed. The mathematician Euler was responsible for our common, modern-day use of many famous mathematical notations—for example, f(x ) for a function, e for the base of natural logs, i for the square root of –1, Π for pi, Σ for summation. Shakespeare is credited with coining nearly 1700 words in the English language. These are our symbols. The logic was also developed gradually; the grammar, mathematical proofs, critical reasoning, logical reasoning, etc. form the parts of logic that bind those symbols. Therefore, if you are a logical creature, chances are that you would not face difficulty understanding either of these subjects, provided you are comfortable with the symbols- English vocabulary or mathematical notations, whatever the case maybe. The progression of thoughts of a writer is not markedly different from that of a mathematician. While reading a good passage one can automatically guess the next paragraph. In the same manner, a mathematician proceeds from one thought to another in a logical manner, removing obstacles in his path to discovery and finding answers to the problems one after another.
