The Ten Commandments of Mathematics
[And God said, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of arithmetic algebra, out of the land of Euclidean geometry:]

Thou shalt not divide by zero.

Thou shalt not put other textbooks before thee in math class.

Thou shalt show thy work; check thy work and confirm that thy results are reasonable.

Remember thy test days and prepare for them wholly.

Thou shalt honor the correct order of operations.

Thou shalt not do thy math homework in ink.

Thou shalt commit the facts of arithmetic to memory.

Thou shalt do unto one side of an equation what thou doest to the other.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy original problems; thou shalt copy thy problems accurately and legibly.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s paper, not anything that is thy neighbor’s."

When the people saw the derivatives and geometric constructions and heard the Linear Algebra students’ torment, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said to Leibniz, “Speak to us yourself and we shall listen. But do not have the creator of Mathematics speak to us, lest the vast amount of information expand our minds so greatly such that our heads shall explode."

In the beginning, God said, “Let epsilon be greater than 0…"
