MATHEMATICS does not have a full form because it is a complete word which stands for something else entirely. Any attempt to make a full form of it will make the word meaningless. Mathematics is from the Greek word 'Methema' which literally means 'what one discovers' or 'what one learns'. Mathematics is one of the core science subjects which has a lot of applications to modern discoveries and technology Mathematics is a subject that deals with calculations, and it is often called by maths instead of its full form. Mathematics as a subject is an important pillar on which technological discoveries are built on.

Many students do not like mathematics and the reason is because of the nature of the subject. It requires a level of brilliancy from students because there are so many rules, theorems that must be understood before going into the application of Mathematics in solving mathematical problems.

Mathematics is already the full form of the word. There are some people who may shorten this to “Math” or “Maths.” Mathematics is a word that comes from the Greek word máthēma. This word means to study, knowledge, or learning. This is basically what people do whenever they are studying math.

They make it a point to learn new things. People are always a bit torn about math. There are some people who absolutely like it because they find it easy. There are also some people who do not like math a lot. They find this very hard to do so they do not push through with it anymore.
