This comparison, although well meant, is unsuitable for demonstrating in introductory quantum mechanics the convergence of classical and quantum predictions for large quantum numbers, for it really tries to match ‘‘classical apples’’ with ‘‘quantum pears’’! First, it compares a classical oscillatory state with a quantum stationary state, instead of comparing it to the corresponding quantum nonstationary state. Second, it compares probabilities of different quality, namely, a classical probability of the classical oscillator (which could be circumvented by specifying the initial conditions precisely) with a quantum probability of the quantum oscillator (which cannot be avoided by any means). However, it is shown that both defects can be nicely corrected, illuminating the fact that—if properly formulated— classical and quantum oscillators have more in common than the textbooks are trying to make the beginner believe. The associated quantum position probability density, because it is now truly analogous to the classical situation, agrees much better with the classical curve than the textbook one does, and its analytical form also explains why the textbook quantum curve, derived from an unwarranted comparison, nevertheless resembles the classical curve in some sense.
