HtDP Languages and Math

A comment by Matthais on the nature of the first three HtDP languages:

HtDP’s first three teaching languages are basically mathematics, ignoring the parentheses. We use
— arithmetic, for many different forms of data
— algebra, for (potentially conditional) function definitions
— pre-calculus, for induction and recursion (these things converge, like series)
