School children are taught the commutativity property in the negative form of what is written in the title. For example 4x5=5x4=20.
This is valid for the standard multiplication of numbers but fails for many other kinds of product, such as for example the product of matrices or the rotation of solids.

Vrouwelijke wetenschappers bepalen mee de geschiedenis. Ook nu. Maar te vaak blijven ze onopgemerkt. Het is hoog tijd ze een podium te geven. Met die boodschap nodigden Caroline Pauwels, rector van de Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Yvon Englert, rector van de Université Libre de Bruxelles, en het Brussels Institute of Mathematics (BIMS) maar liefst 400 gasten uit op maandag 30 januari voor een exclusieve avant-première van de film Hidden Figures.
