Whole or part?

Can Latin help you in Math? Have math terms like integer and fraction ever troubled you? These terms should not trouble a student of Latin. The word integer comes from the Latin word integer, integra, integrum- whole, untouched and the word fraction comes from the Latin word frango, frangere, fregi, fractus- to break. Therefore, a student of Latin should see the word ‘integer’ and think ‘whole’ and see the word ‘fraction’ and think ‘part of a whole’ because something was broken.
