“Math” or “Maths”?
As far as I know, the term "math" is a clipped form of the word mathematics. In other words, it's already plural. So is there really a valid word "maths"?
I realize that the above is a picky/whiny question, and I'm definitely not an English professor, however I have seen the word "maths" show up in published technical articles (along with misspelled words and bizarre English), and I'm wondering if anyone is checking/editing this stuff.
