Blame can be passed around to a number of sources,  Teachers, parents, and of course math Yet it has its place because It is an elemental way of communicating data Data being representations of something, a noun In dealing with computers you must always remember: They are stupid and dumb So all they can understand is simple All they can understand is math Expressions that can make sense out of nonsense 2 OK, Seriously Misunderstood

Nope Just to make you not fear the unknown So…. . Numbers: real and unreal (joke) Real Numbers are: A number that can contain both  whole and fractional components; fractions are  represented by digits to the right of the radix. (Radix is  an MIT term for the decimal point) which we all know  and love but is not as complicated or a precise as some  would like.) You fear math because you don’t know the lingo! 3 My goal is not to create math geniuses

I won’t lie to you just strain your sense of reality What is an Integer? => A whole number Pointers R us=> A data element that contains the  address of another. Points from one data element to  another.  =>   It links non-consecutive pieces of data together But this is getting away from what I want to discuss What makes it work and why Basis is Boolean algebra = ways to have answers in  true-false or yes-no or on-off 4 There is a previously unused part of your  book and brain: The glossary:use it
