Maths the Language of Science

Mathematics is considered the language of science. Because mathematics is truly a language, like English, Arabic, Urdu or Chinese. Without mathematics we can’t study the universe and its phenomena.

Well said by Galileo :

“Mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe.”

The universe cannot be read until we have learnt the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and the letters are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without which means it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word.


Mathematics meets all characteristics of a language. The symbols, their meanings, syntax, and grammar are the same throughout the world. Mathematicians, scientists, and others use math to communicate concepts. Mathematics describes itself (a field called meta mathematics), real-world phenomena, and abstract concepts.

Mathematics is the door and key to the sciences.
