I see where you use the term maths, in several places in Chapter 1.
I find it a bit odd. I've always seen it as math before, though that is just short for mathematics.
Probably seems strange to me because I was educated in the United States.

Re: maths
Yes, I grew up with an Anglican education and we said "maths". You may also be taken by my spelling too, e.g. honours over honors and colour over colors. I guess there may be words with 's' instead of the American 'z' too.

Re: maths
Might be something good to note in the preface/intro.

Btw, Anglican? I thought "maths" was a UK thing, no?
