Paul Tanner II says: >You are again trying to limit what a term can mean, when you say that we cannot multiply any two real numbers.
A completely absurd claim on your part Paul. I'd say its you who have trouble seeing things more than one way. I'm simply pointing out the very *elementary* fact that multiplication on integers, and multiplication on real numbers, are not the same, in fact, worlds apart by some measures. To pretend otherwise, especially to little children, is again, absurd. There is no need to pretend with children that we will give them from the outset the one true meaning of multiplication.
You've convinced me that you cannot see this at all. Enough.
