ANyway, Physics sits in the center of technology and math sits in the next outer ring. Math is but a tool to physics and other sciences as a way to explain all the discoveries we made by using a shorthand of equivalents.
When Newton gave us calculus, it was merely a method to display these equivalents in the changes of time, motion, and space. All is explained in a limited number of equivalent values like L, LL, or LLL (Length, area, and Volume).
