Of course "Euler's Number" is often abbreviated "e" ;) ! Good quiz!

An angle is not a point by any means... your question is unclear but its answer would be the angle's vertex, I think. You should also specify that you talk about a set in the discrete question. Maybe you could accept "mathematical analysis" for calculus.

Oh, ok, I forgot it was an A to Z quiz... maybe you should specify the letter in the clues.

I was quoting that "Angle Dance" song from Square 1.

I left "sum" out of the answer because it's used in the question. I thought it would be redundant.

I accidentally deleted my comment. Anyway, is redundancy a problem here ? I don't think so. Riemann is a great mathematician, not a sum ^^.

8! Pretty good for someone who's only taken a partial grade eleven math course. We always use BEDMAS, not PEMDAS. Out of curiosity what does the P stand for?

Parentheses. I had to think about it for a minute.

Your definition of discrete seems to be wrong, discrete means that a set of data can only take certain values (e.g. integers), numbers in the data set could all be the same number and could still be discrete. Good quiz though, one of the few maths quizzes on here that actually tests maths knowledge past basic arithmetic.
