Mathematics and Its Relation to Science
Mathematics and science are both subjects of study that are similar in many ways.
These subjects seem to connect because of their similar focuses. These two subjects are
similar because of their apt to make precise measurements and conversions. Both in the
fields of math and science, measurements must be precise in order to render an
appropriate and exact answer. Math and science are also related because they both require
vigorous understanding of probability so that one may estimate an event in the future like
for example the genetic possibilities of a baby based on the parent’s genes. Finally, both
the subjects of math and science study how to graph data efficiently because making a
graph to show data helps many people interpret the data more easily. In other words, a
graph helps many people see data better than seeing the data in a table format. The graph
also provides an excellent visual to an audience and can help support many important and
valuable ideas.
Measurements are a key similarity between mathematics and science.
Measurements are used in mathematics to find missing sides of shapes, to determine the
degrees of angles, to determine perimeter, area and volumes of various shapes and much
more. Measurements are used in science to find someone’s heart pressure, to take
