OT: math, even though i'm terrible at it.


What's funny is sciences arose from natural philosophy. But, yet to have seen any honorable mention anywhere.


That is at least in part because many of the greatest ancient philosophers made some terribly inaccurate assumptions about the universe and nature, though it is hard to blame them given the available information and technology. More to blame would be the old Catholic Church's attempt to suppress or destroy anything it considered to be contrary to their doctrine. Later Islam and other Christian groups didn't help either. Interestingly enough, the fall of Constantinople to the Turks actually helped spark the later Renaissance when the old writings of many philosophers were taken west and became available to universities in Italy.

Math. Math is often required to do science anyway. Though in that sense, you could study science and still learn math.

I give it to science for having, cool cats

Personally, I was really bad at science and math in school. I was a history and literature person.

I'm more suited to subjects including History, English and sociology. I enjoy maths, I even find it fascinating, when used by people who know what they are doing (Not me). The subject interests me greatly, but I suck at it, science on the other hand, well, yeah. I hated biology and physics, although I did find that chemistry was interesting compared to the other two.

If you are looking at it from a financial point of view, there are a few jobs which specialise in specific areas of both subjects which near the $100,000 pay range.

math is indeed fascinating, especially its several applications, including, but certainly not limited to:

cryptography
accoustics (how to make a sound file sound as close to original as possible, or how to make it smaller in size while preserving as much quality)
signal processing
statistical modeling
computer graphics (there's an advanced form of mathematics that focus on how well characters hairs move, and how to make it look smoother)
games involving odds
geometry can even help develop better vaccines with no side effects!
and many, many other applications.

Yeah, I agree. Maths is probably one of the most useful areas of knowledge for humanity along with science. Although I do belive one does require a particular mindset in order to create a career out of those two subjects, obviously possessing above average intelligence is one aspect, much like History, or any subject that you choose to specialise in.

Math is technically a type of science. They're intrinsically related, so I don''t see the point of choosing one

Science because you can do more with it. In many times math is used as an application to prove or disprove scientific theories.

I hate, hate, hate math. Science can be interesting. I enjoyed my class on Plants and People.

Still, I'm not really fit for either of them. I enjoyed Plants and People more from its cultural perspective than scientific perspective.
