st: a little off-topic, but a good trivia question
My teenage daughter's math teacher has posed a riddle to her class: why is the
letter "m" traditionally used (at least here in the US, I don't know about
elsehwere) to indicate the slope of a line on a graph? Is there some
underlyinig meaning, or a historical convention?
Thanks for any insights
