Constructs: Numeric, Vectoral, Financial, Force?
Dear PHF Colleagues: I believe this thread will be of interest to junior PHF
members who are uncertain of the answers. I ask the PHF elites; Please
hold off "telling the answer" until we have 8 or so juniorlevel replies. Thanks.
===============
To my thinking, a construct is a proven and tested approach, a specified,
plan for some successful outcome. An example: DoubleEntry Book Keeping:
As business persons account for cash, to get it right, they use the construct,
doubleentry accounting. Counting money is what it is but in a "construct" way. Vectors: Are vectors a mathematical construct? Is the derivative
a construct.
What are your understanding of what is a "construct." Force: Clearly, force is a construct. Should teaching physics go.. "No, Jonny,
there is no such thing as a force. Force is a construct invented only as a
helpful way of thinking about physics."
