This is a great question. I think you would likely get two different answers depending on whether you ask a mathematician or someone else. For a mathematician, arithmetic is just one of the major branches of mathematics. Some other branches that you might have studied in school are geometry and algebra, . For almost anybody else in the public, mathematics and arithmetic would be essentially the same thing and both would be described as working with numbers.Who can explain me what is the main difference between math and arithmetic? Thanks for any advice.
“Arithmetic is to mathematics as spelling is to writing.” ...
Math uses signs, symbols, and proofs and includes arithmetic,
algebra, calculus, geometry, and trigonometry. The most obvious difference is that arithmetic is all about numbers and mathematics is all about theory.
