1. Uses of Math in Chemistry*
Mathematics is used widely in chemistry as well as all other sciences. Mathematical calculations are absolutely necessary to explore important concepts in chemistry. Without some basic mathematics skills, these calculations, and therefore chemistry itself, will be extremely difficult. However, with a basic knowledge of some of the mathematics that will be used in your chemistry course, you will be well prepared to deal with the concepts and theories of chemistry. Mathematics is used in chemistry to take correct ratios of reactants to gain correct product. Math is used in a lot of calculations like finding the moles and mass of certain elements in particular substances and finding the pressure exerted by a gas in a particular volume at a particular temperature.

2. Uses of Math in Physics*
Whether it's calculating the velocity of a falling body under the influence of gravity or plotting the course of an object in orbit about a heavenly body, we're always using mathematics to discover what we need to know. Physics is the study of matter and motion and mathematics is used in most all corners of it. The measurement of things in physics involves mathematics, and when we begin to make calculations regarding the interaction of things in nature, we grab our mathematics toolbox.

3. Uses of Math in Architecture*
Math is used architecture every angle, wall length and everything like that must be exact so the building does not fall over when a lot of people go inside of it.  Every detail, neither big nor small should have exact measurements. The angles of the roof, the thickness of a wall, the amount of materials that will be used, calculating the exact location of a building and even the number of detail, these all includes math.  4. Uses of Math in History*

History often seems to pay attention to wars, scandals, economic ups and downs, immigration, and changes in government. In History we often use math to know the dates of wars,...
