Can I use "in dem täglichen Leben"? It was accepted

Would the preposition phrase "in alltaeglichem Leben" also be legal? Or would a german start chasing me shouting "grammar error!"

Not likely. But it is a grammar error.

I got this comment: Be careful not to confuse "Mathematik" and "Mathe"! I never knew there was a difference. Can anyone explain to me what the difference is?

"Mathe" is the short form of "Mathematik", just like "math" is the short form of "mathematics".

Thanks, that's exactly what I thought. So it both answers should be correct here, right? I used Mathe and it was wrong...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Herbstzeitlose-

Yes, they should both be correct.
