# Maths

The Maths or **mathematics** is the **science** deductive dedicated to the study of the properties of **abstract entities** and their **relationships** . This means that mathematics works with **numbers** , **symbols** , **geometric figures** , etc.

Starting from axioms and following logical reasoning, mathematics analyses **structures** , **magnitudes** and **links** of abstract entities. This allows, once certain patterns are detected, to formulate conjectures and establish definitions that are arrived at by deduction.

Math works with **quantities** (numbers) but also with non-quantitative abstract constructions. Its purpose is practical, since abstractions and logical reasoning can be applied in models that allow the development of calculations, accounts and measurements with physical correlation.

It could be said that almost all human activities have some kind of link with mathematics. These links can be evident, as in the case of **engineering** , or be less obvious, as in **medicine** or **music** .

It is possible to divide mathematics into different areas or fields of study. In this sense we can talk about **arithmetic** (the study of numbers), **algebra** (the study of structures), **geometry** (the study of segments and figures) and **statistics** (the analysis of data collected), between others
