comment “even more”, “even much more”, “many more”
Not really; in my opinion all of those are ambiguous and unclear.

comment “even more”, “even much more”, “many more”
Ah! Well as I said, the sentence was quite ambiguous. So what is wrong with what you just wrote in your comment? "parents teach us how to speak, how to interact in social situations, and many other things besides."

comment “But most importantly, your philosophy is what is the most appealing to me.” How do I avoid the repetition of “most”?
I am not the downvoter, but personally I don't like these options because they sound too emotional or personal for formal writing.

I don't think "total" is really a mathematical term. I think if a mathematician wants to make that distinction, s/he would use "sum" and "result".
