Every person has taken math in school some time in their life. BUT, why don’t we have a clear definition of Mathematics? What on earth are we studying? What kind of education puts you through 12 years of math and doesn't even explain to you what it is? Its funny/sad how we can't even define it in even a slightly coherent way. Which tells us a lot about how intelligent we and our teachers are.Doing a google search on "what math is" doesn't really help either.So I attempted to answer the question "what is math", and also since it is very close to science, I tried to explain "what is science", and compared them. http://www.calculusacademy.com/what-is-math.htmlwhat do you think?
