That science, or class of sciences, which treats of the exact relations existing between quantities or magnitudes, and of the methods by which, in accordance with these relations, quantities sought are deducible from other quantities known or supposed; the science of spatial and quantitative relations.
Study of everything that is too theoretical and abstract for humans to understand.
(1) A study of relationships among numbers, shapes, and patterns. Mathematics is used to count and measure things, to discover similarities and differences, to solve problems, and to learn about and organize the world.
A body of related courses concerned with knowledge of measurement, properties, and relations quantities, which can include theoretical or applied studies of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, and calculus.
curricular area that involves quantities, relationships, and reasoning, in domains including arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and calculus.
A study of relationships among numbers, shapes, and patterns. It is used to count and measure things, to discover similarities and differences between and among them, to solve problems, and to learn about and organize our world.
a science (or group of related sciences) dealing with the logic of quantity and shape and arrangement
The study of abstract patterns and relationships that results in an exact language used to communicate about them.
The science that deals with numbers, quantities, shapes, patterns measurement, and the concepts related to them, and their relationships. Includes arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, etc.
includes arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.
A behavior developing out of earlier naming activities, which, as it advances, more and more gains independence of namings and specializes on symboling. See Symbol.
Also known as math. This field studies values, numbers, and quantities.Those values could be simple amounts such as the number of nuts. The values could also apply to shapes and describe length, width, and volume. When more than one value is involved, mathematics looks at changes. It could be as complex and the change in location of a planet or the change in amount when you start with five nuts and eat two.
The performance of arithmetic operations and reporting on and/or carrying out a prescribed action in relation to them. Please describe the functions to be performed. Examples include: adding numbers; dividing dollar amounts; measuring items; performing statistical computations using formulas; and, performing analyses using geometry, algebra, or calculus.
(n) An abstract symbol-based communications system based on formal logic. Geometry is one of the oldest fields of mathematics and underlies most of the principles used in technical graphics and CAD.
Mathematics (colloquially, maths, or math in North American English) is the body of knowledge centered on concepts such as quantity, structure, space, and change, and also the academic discipline that studies them. Benjamin Peirce called it "the science that draws necessary conclusions".Peirce, p.97 Steen Steen, L.A. (April 29, 1988).
