What is Math?
Math is the rules of the world by which all things must obey. There are no things in this world that can defy math. Because of this, math is considered a hard science. Math is the only science that is involved in every other science. You can find it in chemistry, physics, biology, psychology, and many others. More than this, we include math in our every day lives all the time. While most math classes focus on the formulas and theorems that are involved in math, we will focus on how math affects us in every day life and how we can use it.
