  • The Three Main Branches Of Study: Operational Research, Statistics And Mathematics

    There are three main branches of study under the umbrella of mathematics including, operational research, statistics and mathematics itself.

Well-known areas include the analysis of voting systems or game theory. Statistics is driven by real-world problems, mostly issues that can’t be broken down into simpler parts and statisticians can make difficult decisions by carefully examining data. Statistics, as an example, allows the effectiveness of a product, or a new drug, or the predictions of flooding easier to determine. Mathematics is at the heart of the world that we know,…

In middle school we were shown that there are 360 degrees in a circle and a numerous variety of rules and theorems that seemed only relevant for that section. We learned about sine, cosine, and tangent, which were chiseled in our brain. In high school we were introduced to things I didn’t know existed, such as derivatives,…
