Concepts of math in and of themselves might seem far removed from the natural world, created to explain and evaluate concrete principles in a way that relies on certainties and hard facts, but when you take a closer look at the world, the way we study it, and the way we interact with it, you might be surprised to find out how much of what we know about the environment is rooted in math. The latest infographic in NEEF’s Greening STEM series explores the many applications of mathematical principles and formulas within the fields of environmental science, technology, and engineering, while also touching on the fascinating ways mathematical concepts can help us identify pattern in nature.
