What advantages are there to studying math and science in High School?

Everyone knows that math, physics and chemistry are very hard, so succeeding in these classes is a major stepping stone to an admission to a top tier college. As a female, excelling in science gives a greater chance of getting a scholarship and an admission to top tier university because colleges are actively seeking to fill the void that exists for talented young women in these areas. Apart from that, careers that use scientific way of thinking are financially and intellectually rewarding. The Powers Method builds confidence not only in science but in life.

What do we define as science?

All science subjects, whether chemistry or computer science, share the same way of thinking. The language of science is mathematics, which, through abstract relationships, defines the world around us.
