What’s unique about mathematics? Knowledge is certified by means of a deductive proof. Mathematicians make claims of absolute certainty. Words, terms, symbols, and diagrams have precise, shared meanings. Mathematicians navigate multiple symbol systems. Mathematical knowledge builds on and does not discard what came before. Mathematical research and literature is stable and reliable. The knowledge system must be free of logical contradiction. Adapted from mathematician, Dr. Hyman Bass, 2006
