The Indians came up with two very valuable concepts that simplify math for us immensely: place value digits and zero. Hartley had to lean heavily in his account on what Reid calls "the exploded method of hypothesis". (251) But attaching a probability to an hypothesis just because it happens to explain "many appearances of nature" still, Reid argues, leaves it as no better than a conjecture, a guess: "every conjecture we can form with regard to the works of God [i.e. the natural world] has as little probability as the conjectures of a child with regard to the works of a man". (235) In his later Essays on the Active Powers of Man (1788), Reid goes further, taking the "Newtonian philosopher" as authority for denying that natural philosophy can discover a single efficient (agent) cause in nature. (1967, II: 526) In the spirit of Berkeley, he holds that all that the science of nature can do is to discover the laws by which observable effect follows observable cause.

Mathieu, a 20-year teaching veteran, experienced an epiphany after getting his national board certification 10 years ago.
