It's reffering to how dates are written down (or said) in the US: 1.2.2008 would be the 2nd of January, 2008. Correct? (M/D/Y)

For the rest of the world 1.2.2008 would be the first of February (D/M/Y) :)

SO, everyone but Americans say "I was born in the wee hours of the 2nd of September in the year of our Lord Nineteen Zed five..muhuh bully..." Where as I (an American) would say" I was born September 2nd 1998, lets go shoot guns and sleep with a blood relative" gotcha.. I understand now..

Not sure you do.... In the US it's WRITTEN down: month/day/year Everywhere (I believe) else: day/month/year

So 1.2.2000 is 2nd of Jan in US, and 1.2.2000 is first of Feb outside US.

You can SAY it however you want, we (the rest of the world outside US) will SAY it however we want as well, and now we'll go drive on our roads which aren't straight and have no pattren whatsoever because we're all peasants.

No need to get all touchy, I just answered your question. If you know of any other country that writes down dates like the US, then by all means share it with me. Because I do not know of any, it dosen't really interest me to the point where I'd look it up myself, nor does our the education programme mention anything about it, but I wouldn't mind hearing about it?

I was using humor, I think I was *tap, tap* this thing on.. I see that's not appreciated round these parts.. I wasn't touchy at all, and I apologize if it came off any other way.. You may continue your Cambridge discussion on the cultural fractures of time expression.

Looked more like you not grasping the date thing, than humor... So, I went along?

Fun fact about the date formatting thing:

US standard: Month/Day/Year
Other countries' standard: Day/Month/Year
International standard: Year/Month/Day

The officially-recognised international fomat leads straight into time following the same largest-unit-to-smallest sequence. Year/Month/Day Hours:Minutes:seconds.littlebitsofseconds

Also +1 to optional measurement unit toggle.

I know I'm coming late to the thread, but I'd just like to say: yes, please. At least an option to switch between F and C would be nice!

It teaches you mathematical problem-solving for real-world problems that include numerical topics. Some of them are systems of linear programming, finite probability, descriptive statistics, and linear equations. So is finite math hard or easy? Read on to find out!
