Math is NOT Science!

Science is fun, inspiring, and satisfying.  Math is dull and boring! No wonder they have nothing to do with each other.

Math can only describe, whereas Science is making rational explanations of events. It is the difference between,

  • "There was $10 dollars in my pocket and now 7 are gone.  I now have $3 left." (Mathematics)
  • "Why do I have three dollars in my pocket? Well, I started with $10 and spent $7 on lunch." (Science)
Understand the difference? Math can only describe quantities and thus never involves Scientific hypotheses (assumptions) or theories (explanations).
