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 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?
