What is SCIENCE?
Science is typically subdivided into the natural sciences which study nature in the broadest sense, the social Science which study people and societies, and the formal sciences like mathematics which study abstract concepts. Some do not consider formal sciences to be true Science as theories within these disciplines cannot be tested with physical observations, although others dispute this view. Either way, mathematics is a crucial tool for modern science and nowadays all sciences students need to take at least some basic mathematics courses during their studies. Disciplines which use science like engineering and medicine may also be considered to be applied sciences. Science is related to research, and is normally organized by a university, a college, or a research institute.
