Mathematics is the art and science of abstraction;
it is the systematic study of quantity, structure, space, and change;
to paraphrase Newton, it is the language in which the universe is written.
The study of mathematics provides the abilities to
analyze data, discover patterns, and reason logically.
Computer Science is the fusion of abstraction and technology;
it is the study of representing, processing, and communicating information,
the design and analysis of algorithms,
and the implementation of solutions through both hardware and software.
The study of computer science is both theoretical and practical,
and provides the abilities to develop and to maintain software.
