No past wisdom of common sense is critical; readers desire simply an acquaintance with highschool arithmetic. the writer emphasizes figuring out, instead of strategy, and makes a speciality of such issues because the historic purposes for the formation of Aristotelian good judgment, the increase of mathematical good judgment after greater than 2,000 years of conventional common sense, the character of the formal axiomatic procedure and the explanations for its use, and the most result of metatheory and their philosophic import.
