    Why is this forum called "Math and Physics"? It should be Maths and Physics.

    The use of "Maths" sounds semi-literate. Are you sure about this usage?

    I think it's probably a cultural thing?, either is probably OK, depending where you are!.

    In Australia we abbreviate mathematics as maths not math. Math seems clumsy.

    Same in the UK, I think 'math' is just an Americanism!.

    Here I've learned as "math".

    Lol, in Portuguese, it's "clumsier".

    Mathematics = Matemática
    Abreviation = Mat.
