10. ZERO

Our place-holding hero

* Without zero, this simple miracle (number one-zero) would not be possible.

* It originally appeared at CWRU in the fall of 2004. I think that we were thinking of the song, "Zero, my hero," on the Multiplication Rock tape to which I listened when I was very young.
* At CWRU, there are many engineers and scientists whose appreciation for a mathematical innovation like zero was very strong.
