What is the definition of math?
HARD :) THEY MAY HAVE CAME OUT WRONG LOL
math is some complicated crap that we have to use in the world...no one likes it but thats life
Hmmmm Yes I See I'm Getting Mixed Vibes...Its Awesome But It Sucks ?
LOL imma delete my reply kay
Lol No No Let It Stay
In calculus that's where the fun begins. You get to divide my zero and go to infinity and do all sorts of math magical stuff.
why ppl is gonna think it's somethink freakish @BradNasty LOL
So.....god is good at math? o.O
MATH = a group of related sciences including algebra, geometry, and calculus concerned with the study number, quantity, shape, and space in their interrelationship by using specialized notation ! LOLOLOLOL LIKE I RELLY KNEW THAT!!! && GOD IS GOOD AT EVERYTHING PEANUT
So Math is Hell, Hard, Awesome, and Complicated Crap
BRAD THIS IS NOT RELIGION CLASS IT'S JUST MATH LOL
So this "math" is just symbols and stuff?
-.- math is math ok ! now shut up ;DDDDDDDD
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics <- WOULD ANSWER FURTHER ON.
Lol whats math then @Hero
awesome first question brad....lol
theres no evidence that god exists. why do you tools keep asserting god exists
We aren't going to get into this religious belief crap but think what you like if you don't believe in god then good for you c: this is about the definition of math
Can you apply math to everything in life?
MATH may be for layman : Mental Ability Test for Humans ! :D
also..maths is life !
it is labour,hardwork, with no wages but only with little joy!!!...
math is a tool created by us in order to help us explain the world
Math = M.ental A.buse T.o H.umans
@Hero You're a disappointment.
awwww @hero....i don't think you're a disappointment.
Because you obviously hate the study of logic, reasoning, structure, science, precision, and reality.
mathematics is the science of quantities
Mathematics is the abstract study of topics encompassing quantity structure, space, change, and other properties;[6] it has no generally accepted definition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics
yaa @Hero because there is no basic def. of math as there are many properties and properties can't be added in def. of math.so i copy it...right bro???
yaa. you are correct that is why it is best
What? I'm always open for more opinions of what math is
Lol Spectrum definition was pretty good (:
@Kainui calculus does not allow you to divide by zero. but i agree with you, it is where math gets interesting
Math is a students waste of time unless your going to be a math teacher or something. if not screw it :)......they give us all these equations and stuff that were never ever gunna need or use.
@Mathmuse Yes, technically you don't divide by zero in calculus, but it's pretty close to it. Practically speaking, finding the instantaneous rate of change is pretty close to "dividing by zero" in a defined way. To me, math was more like grammar lessons up until calculus where we actually got to flex our minds and create things out of infinitesimals and optimize things. In a sense, this was the fun part, and any time you deal with something in calculus you are always dealing with infinity in some form or another and I think it really made me love math when before that I didn't care much at all for it. There's a very negative mindset towards math, so it seems foolish for anyone in here to be arguing against someone saying something enthusiastic about math such as, "You get to divide by zero" when really you're "Dividing by x as x approaches 0" as it's splitting hairs when most people here are saying "Math sucks" and seems to be should be encouraged to see how math can become something very interesting and philosophical. Hell, e^ix=cosx+isinx is easily shown by comparing their representations as _infinite_ term polynomials. That's damn cool, if someone showed that to me in algebra 1 I would have been curious to find out how and might have made better grades in the past.
Even my Math teacher when I asked her one particularly boring day when will I use this said " When you become a Math teacher"
@Kainui There really is no arguement or splitting hairs, and any amount of enthusiasm doesn't mask the fact that it's not the case; calculus doesn't involve division by zero. 'Pretty close' is just that, and calling people disappointments or foolish won't make it so.
math is the science of numbers and their operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations, and generalizations.
Math is the Law of Logic.
