I have to agree totally about paper copy vs digital
with hard copy I can have as many books open as I have room on my desk or any other flat surface this is handy when doing research I can flip randomly through the pages and insert page markers with digital I would sometimes need 3 and sometimes more monitors Like I had at my last job before retiring.I had 1 huge 72" screen mounted on the wall for everyone to view and 2 32" screens on my desk great for viewing cad drawings but horrible for flipping pages in books
right now I am doing a design consulting project that requires both of my much smaller screes than i used to have plus half a dozen books on bearings, materials strength structural shapes, hydraulic motors, valves hoses and an assortment of others it would be very laborious to try and have all of that showing on my monitor at once along with all of the cad drawings i am trying to critique

"Irrational" numbers and "perfect" numbers probably project images to the student that also interfere with understanding.
Of course, metalworking is not immune from this. Consider bastard files, nut breakers and prick punches.
In physics we have quarks with "charm" and "color".
Jargon is everywhere.

Marv when are we going to delve into the metaphysical synopsis of the acceleration light particles striking each other at angles across all wave lengths. Do they cancel each other out and create minutia partials of dark matter or are they altered in both speed and size creating another wave length.
Yep I'm out there again
I don't have any confusion at this stage of life, but back when I was young (freshman grade school algebra) it introduced a word definition "embolism".
I know it's accepted, but it would be nice to reduce the confusing word for the next generations.
I always wished I could see intuitively the mapping of Laplace/Fourier convolution integral from frequency to time domain. Those guys could 'see' this. To me it's an idea I used, but didn't see the gears "worling".
