How Math And Science See Each Other

There's more than a kernel of truth in this:
We’re always lumping them together, scientists and mathematicians. They’re “STEM” professionals: bespectacled, smart, pleasantly soft-spoken until you conflate Star Trek and Star Wars, after which their wrath is visited upon you.

But the fact is that, aside from being the butt of cheap jokes, mathematicians and scientists don’t share all that much in common.

And you can tell that from the way they look at each other’s fields.
You've got to love the "bad drawings".

Our school's "Science Fair" first evolved into the "STEM Expo", and now is the "STEAM Expo". We've asked where the M comes into it, since we have yet to see a math experiment or proof attempted.
