Answers:Everything can be mathematically based, so I would have to say the advantages of knowing mathematics totally outweighs the disadvantages of learning it. History Main article: History of mathematics The evolution of mathematics might be seen to be an ever-increasing series of abstractions, or alternatively an expansion of subject matter. The first abstraction was probably that of numbers. The realization that two apples and two oranges have something in common, namely that they fill the hands of exactly one person, was a breakthrough in human thought. In addition to recognizing how to count concrete objects, prehistoric peoples also recognized how to count abstract quantities, like time -- days, seasons, years. Arithmetic (e.g., addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), naturally followed. Monolithic monuments testify to a knowledge of geometry. Further steps need writing or some other system for recording numbers such as tallies or the knotted strings called khipu used by the Inca empire to store numerical data. Numeral systems have been many and diverse. From the beginnings of recorded history, the major disciplines within mathematics arose out of the need to do calculations on taxation and commerce, to understand the relationships among numbers, to measure land, and to predict astronomical events. These needs can be roughly related to the broad subdivision of mathematics, into the studies of quantity, structure, space, and change. Mathematics since has been much extended, and there has been a fruitful interaction between mathematics and science, to the benefit of both. Mathematical discoveries have been made throughout history and continue to be made today. According to Mikhail B. Sevryuk, in the January 2006 issue of the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, "The number of papers and books included in the Mathematical Reviews database since 1940 (the first year of operation of MR) is now more than 1.9 million, and more than 75 thousand items are added to the database each year. The overwhelming majority of works in this ocean contain new mathematical theorems and their proof."
Answers:Advantage - you can see patterns in the numbers of a table. A published table has a reasonable chance of being accurate to the listed significant digits. Disadvantages - using a table can result in a lack of understanding of the base principles you are working with. Tables are sometimes not well edited, and can lead to incorrect answers, or don't have sufficient precision to give accurate answers for some problems. Tables based on experimental data may be wrong due to imprecision in the experimental methods used to create them - you may not have access to the experimenters raw data to make an assessment of that for your purposes.
Answers:It wears on your brain.
Answers:there arent advantages or disadvantages. What do you like? Physics is math intensive. It is about the mathematics of nature i.e. friction, momentum, collisions etc. If you dont like math as much take bio or chem. chem has more math than bio.
