The natural sciences seek to understand how the world and the universe around us works. There are five major branches: Chemistry, astronomy, earth
science, physics, and biology.
Stop - Can you think of a type of science that is not natural?
Through a Google search, I learned that economics is a science, but not a natural one. There are also social sciences - are those natural? It turns
out they are not natural sciences, in fact, they are the opposite side of the coin. What about agricultural science, is it a natural science? The
answer is that it is a combination of sciences, including biology and economics, so it is a hybrid.
Mathematics is the tool that we use to examine the sciences, so all math is math. These distinctions were quite interesting for me to discover
