Mathematical Science

Mathematics is one of the oldest and most fundamental sciences. Mathematicians use mathematical theory, computational techniques, algorithms, and the latest computer technology to solve economic, scientific, engineering, physics, and business problems. The work of mathematicians falls into two broad classes- theoretical (pure) mathematics and applied mathematics. These classes, however, are not sharply defined, and often overlap.  The study of mathematics as a science does follow either a theoretical or application-based approach.
