Mathematics is not a Science

May 28th Fact-of-the-Day

Mathematics 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 Martek International All rights reserved.
