### Meaning of MATHEMATICS

 Pronunciation: `mathu'matiks WordNet Dictionary Definition: [n]  a science (or group of related sciences) dealing with the logic of quantity and shape and arrangement MATHEMATICS is a 11 letter word that starts with M. Synonyms: See Also: Webster's 1913 Dictionary Definition: ```\Math`e*mat"ics\, n. [F. math['e]matiques, pl., L. mathematica, sing., Gr. ? (sc. ?) science. See {Mathematic}, and {-ics}.] That science, or class of sciences, which treats of the exact relations existing between quantities or magnitudes, and of the methods by which, in accordance with these relations, quantities sought are deducible from other quantities known or supposed; the science of spatial and quantitative relations. Note: Mathematics embraces three departments, namely: 1. {Arithmetic}. 2. {Geometry}, including {Trigonometry} and {Conic Sections}. 3. {Analysis}, in which letters are used, including {Algebra}, {Analytical Geometry}, and {Calculus}. Each of these divisions is divided into pure or abstract, which considers magnitude or quantity abstractly, without relation to matter; and mixed or applied, which treats of magnitude as subsisting in material bodies, and is consequently interwoven with physical considerations. ``` Thesaurus Terms Related Terms: algebra, algebraic geometry, algorism, algorithm, analysis, analytic geometry, applied mathematics, arithmetic, associative algebra, binary arithmetic, Boolean algebra, calculus, circle geometry, descriptive geometry, differential calculus, division algebra, equivalent algebras, Euclidean geometry, figures, Fourier analysis, game theory, geodesy, geometry, graphic algebra, group theory, higher algebra, higher arithmetic, higher mathematics, hyperbolic geometry, infinitesimal calculus, integral calculus, intuitional geometry, invariant subalgebra, inverse geometry, Lagrangian function, line geometry, linear algebra, math, mathematic, mathematical physics, matrix algebra, metageometry, modular arithmetic, natural geometry, nilpotent algebra, n-tuple linear algebra, number theory, numbers, plane trigonometry, political arithmetic, projective geometry, proper subalgebra, pure mathematics, quaternian algebra, reducible algebra, set theory, simple algebra, solid geometry, speculative geometry, spherical trigonometry, statistics, subalgebra, systems analysis, topology, trig, trigonometry, universal algebra, universal geometry, vector algebra, zero algebra
