Mathematics is not just about numbers and arithmetic. While once considered the most fundamental activity to all science, mathematics is in fact simply another form of science, the science of patterns. All the sub-topics in math become studies of patterns. For example, number theory is the study of the pattern of numbers. Geometry is the study of the pattern of shapes. Algebra studies the patterns of putting things together. Calculus is the study of patterns of continuous motion and change. Topology is the study of patterns of closeness and relative position. Probability theory is the study of patterns of repetition in random events. Statistics the study of patterns in real-world data. And logic is the study of patterns of abstract reasoning.
