• Mathematics:

Operations and processes involved in the solution of a problem or study of some scientific field can be identified as the mathematical process.  Mathematics is a group of related sciences, including algebra, geometry, and calculus, concerned with the study of a number, quantity, size, shape, and space; including their interrelationships by using a specialized notation.
