Hi - I notice that the name "Pythagoras" is spelt "Pithagoras" in this article....Is this an Americanism that I'm not aware of...? Should I edit the article...? 16:18, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

As far as I am aware, the correct spelling is Pythagoras. Yes, I think you should edit the page. More precisely, I think someone should edit it. Be bold. JohnCSUB05 15:10, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

In general ...[edit source]

In general, I see that there are several problems with this article, which itself states that it is in need of contributors to help expand and improve it. Obviously not much work has been done to this in a looong time. Is anyone alive out there??? I suppose that I will start by making minor changes to the existing content. Hopefully, this will stimulate a flurry of constructive activity, or at the very least a series of flames directed one against another JohnCSUB05 15:17, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Ok, folks. I've gone and done it (edited section 1 of this document)! Flame on, everyone!

Oh, I realize that there is a LOT more to do, even on this section of the document, and I probably have broken a lot of rules, but at least I did something. JohnCSUB05 20:40, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

What is the target audience?[edit source]

Cauchy Series and Dedekind Cuts are both valid ways to define the real numbers, but are beyond the level of the typical College Algebra student.

I would prefer that we have a more intuitive approach. I may add it. EdEveridge (talk) 04:12, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
