**Page 187: That was exhausting…**

**Pages 188-189: It’s tempting to think that calculus is the pinnacle… // That’s because mathematics is about finding patterns…**

**Pages 190-191: The calculations of pi in Chapter 3… // If you think those examples are trippy…**

MB: p. 190 ? Are the right hand pictures supposed to be the limiting figures??????? How can this be? They are just figures along the way to the limits, aren’t they?YB: I’m tempted to just reply that you need to look at them more closely!! 🙂 Seriously, we will ponder, but I think this is probably fine as-is.

**Pages 192-193: For another example of limits, consider prime numbers. // It turns out that these precise answers…**

MB: p. 193 If you are going to use the symbol ln, then define it.YB: No space, and I think this is fine.

MB: On graph, label axes (maybe use ’n’, not ‘x’).YB: Yes we will work on labeling the axes. I think “x” is probably better than “n” because x/ln(x) is a continuous function.

MB: Symbol x-> infinity should be down below.YB: I see your point and am working with Grady to edit.

MB: I think this example is too abstruse.YB: Agreed that it’s challenging, but it’s a really neat application so I think it’s worth it.

**Pages 194-195: And of course we use limits in calculus… // …and integrals…**

**Pages 196-197: Calculus applies to rabbits because… // The mathematical result is called a differential equation…**

MB: p. 197 This will be unintelligible to most of your readers, I would think, but if you want to use it, explain what equation is doing and define P_oYB: I agree that this is tricky, but I’m not sure if more verbiage will help. I’ve suggested to Grady that we define P_0, but we don’t have space to define or explain everything here.

RC: Like the examples of leaf patterns, rabbits, apples…would love to see more social science and unique examples throughout as I noted above.YB: Not sure if we can fit in more.

**Pages 198-199: Another advanced topic… // Multi-variable calculus…**

MB: p. 199 Ditto. Show a picture, define all terms (P_L, P_K) or don’t do this.YB: I think this is okay as-is. We’re just trying to give them a taste.

**Page 200: In short, there’s plenty more to study…**

RC: Nice ending
