From years of science and math classes, I've realized that without math, there would not be science. There are so many mathematical equations and estimations done in science, and sometimes you don't even realize it. Almost every scientific experiment includes math. Here are a few examples:

Mixing Solutions: When you mix two solutions together, you can't put mix too much, or else it will have a very large chemical reaction, and you can't put too little, or else you won't have a large enough chemical reaction. So what do you need to do? You need to use Algebra, and more specifically, solving systems. Without math, this would be virtually impossible to complete.

Measurement: I'm sure you have used a beaker to measure the amount of some liquid, or measure the length of something, so that you could record it for whatever reason. You may have even weighed things with a scale. Well, I sure have. You even need mathematical equations for volume and circumference of objects. Without math, you would not have a number system or different measuring tools to do these measurements. Without measurements, no data. No data, no knowledge. Do you see why math is needed for science? Here's one more example:

Equations: One of the most famous scientific equations ever is e=mc^2. But, you need math to understand this equation. If you substitute numbers for m and c, you would have to square c, and then multiply it by m. This number is e. If you don't understand math and the order of operations, you wouldn't be able to read this equation correctly. There are also many other equations for science, like D=RT, C=D*PI, and A=1/2bh. By demonstrating these three examples, I have just
