Maths isn’t just for mathematicians – scientists such as physicists use maths daily and regularly; it’s essential to asking and answering questions about the natural world.
There are vast arrays of different mathematical skills that will help scientists test and analyse data. One area of maths used to analyse data is statistics, which enables researchers to learn from numbers by controlling, measuring and communicating areas of certainty and uncertainty.
Maths is extremely useful when one wants to understand or manipulate something on paper that they see in the physical world, or vice versa. It helps them solve problems within the world, modelled in complex mathematics. When you throw a stone horizontally, it will follow an arc, eventually leading downwards, and if thrown with harder intensity, it will travel longer. If these phenomena are analysed and formulated, the data can be applied to larger things, such as a missile or a glider.
With so many mathematical models already existing in the world, scientists have a choice of many. Whatever they wish to solve or suggest, maths will always offer a possible solution, whether it is algebra, calculus, graph theory, typology and many, many more.
We hope this category offers everything you need to learn about how scientists make use of mathematics. With over half a million ebooks and etextbooks here at Kortext, we’re sure we’ve got just what you’re looking for. Enjoy reading with Kortext!s
