Really? I thought Math is a part of it

Re: Science

Hi;

I think they are two separate studies. Very different.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Science

Do we have a definition?

We have a problem with that.

Mathematics is the abstract study of quantity,structure, space,  change and many other topics. It has no generally accepted definition.

Re: Science

Some people like to classify Mathematics as a Science. I proposed in the title that Science actually is a part of Mathematics. Makes sense ... right?

I tend to agree with this.

Re: Science

I think science and mathematics are different studies.But science needs maths,though maths doesn't need science.In that sense science is part of mathematics.


There are 10 kinds of people in the world,people who understand binary and people who don't.

That they do, I tend to think of it as an art. Something requiring talent.
