# Mathematics is not a Science

May 28th Fact-of-the-DayMathematics is an
extremely important tool in all branches of science. Anyone interested
in pursuing a science-career will not get very far without a solid understanding
of mathematics. However, it is important to understand that mathematics
is not a natural science. One important reason is that mathematical validity
does not depend on experiment, whereas in science, the sole judge of validity
is experiment. That doesn't make mathematics bad. Mathematics is an extremely
useful tool in science, but mathematics is not a science. *©2005
