ARE YOU INFECTED WITH MV/C ?
What is MV
A mathematical virus (MV) is a preconception about the structure, function or method of mathematics which impairs one's ability to do mathematics.
What is MV/C?
MV/C is a mathematical virus which is easily diagnosed, the infected suffer from the delusion that "Coordinates are essential to calculations". Physicists and engineers are especially susceptible to this virus, because most of their textbooks are infected, and infected teachers pass it on to their students.
The first MV was discovered by David Hestenes, a theoretical physicist, best known as chief architect of geometric algebra as a unified language for mathematics and physics.
