Mathematics is the study of quantitative relationships expressed in numbers and symbols. It focuses on mathematical concepts and theories and involves their formulation, testing, interpretation, and practical application. Mathematics is usually referred to as either pure (more theoretical and abstract) or applied (more practical and visibly problem solving).

Major specializations: abstract algebra, linear algebra, geometry, calculus, probability, statistics, numerical analysis, and number theory.
