Top definition
Math results or formulas that hold true under certain conditions, but fail in other contexts—say, multiplication makes a product larger; any number divided by itself is one; and zero divided by a number is zero.
To warn students against the danger of generalizing or extrapolating a mathematical formula, we need to go beyond situational math to expose its limited use—for example, zero divided by zero is neither one or zero.
