The short answer is no. Physics, Chemistry and Engineering are nothing but applying math to the real world. So if you are good at math, you will likely do well. Writing becomes important with things like lab reports in school. In the real world, if you are going into one of these disciplines, writing may become important if you need to put together a technical document or wish to publish a paper on something that you are researching.

Being good at math is required for (most kinds of) chemistry, physics, and engineering. It's not all that's required, so you could be good at math and still fail those classes.

Being bad at programming is not a good sign. It's indicative of a lack of logical thinking, which is required for pretty much every kind of chemistry, physics, and engineering. So being bad at programming regardless of whatever other skills you have is a sign you might fail those classes.

Being bad at writing is ... largely irrelevant. If you're talking about creative writing, you don't actually have to be very creative to be a pretty good scientist and/or engineer (depending on your specialty, of course; you might not be much of an inventor, but if your job is more analytical in nature, then creativity doesn't play much of a role). If you're talking about the ability to remember the basic rules of grammar and construct coherent sentences, then if you lack that you're probably going to fail pretty much everything.

No, and in fact this is one of the stupidest statements I've ever heard. Being good at math is actually a requirement for (most kinds of) chemistry and engineering.

Judging by the number of variations on this question I've seen recently, there must be some idiot spouting this drivel in the popular media somewhere, but it's nonsense.

Being good at math is not a guarantee that you'll pass chemistry and/or engineering, but it certainly can't hurt.

Just the opposite: being good at Math is the best sign that you will probably do well at Chemistry, Physics and Engineering. (This answer is from someone who majored in Engineering, then switched to Physics, and taught Chemistry and Physics in High School.)

I can only speak about chemistry and partly about physics (ish). But, there is report writing involved in chemistry. These are often lab reports and what makes them easier is they are very structured, i.e. do one and you have a template for the rest. The maths in chemistry isn't very hard at an undergrad level certainly compared to physics, and possibly engineering.

Answer

Writing essays is in many ways like math. Find the format -- possibly the main statement and the reasons it is so, or some other. Writing reflects clear thinking and you'll build those skills as you take more science courses.

No.Before there was a subject called programming (this is a recent development) there were plenty of people who were good at Math, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.

I don't think that's true. If you are good at math, and you find an engineering job that will give you problems to figure out that require math, then you should do fine at it. :)

No. For one thing, it is generally unwise to believe such absolute statements. Engineering is a a very math-intensive field and places far more focus on math than writing.

Is it true that if you're good at math you will fail engineering?

The Answer to your question is NO, indeed this is a rumour and some one has been fooling with you. In fact maths is very much needed in engineering and used directly or indirectly in some or the other subject like Applied Physics, Electronic Devices and Circiuts, etc. So if you are good in maths you will bot fail engineering. And even if by bad luck you fail in any subject, then its not because you are good in maths, but because your efforts in that subject were not up to the mark.


Will physics chemistry and engineering be difficult for you if you are good at math but bad at writing 2000 word essays?

Not necessarily. They may be difficult for you if you're the sort of person that thinks this question makes sense, though.


Are you more than likely to fail physics chemistry and engineering if you are good at math but bad at essays that are 1000 words or more?

You'll need both math skills and writing skills. You should definitely practice writing essays. Not only will this help you in the short term, but you'll need writing skills later on for many different jobs.


What qualifications for Aeronautical Engineering do you need?

Answer In the US, it only requires a Bachelor of Science Degree in a related field of Engineering. also in England you need physics and maths In the UK: You need 5 GCSE's at grades A-C, these must include English, Maths and Physics. You need a grade C or above at A Level Maths and Physics And finally....a degree in Aerospace Engineering.


Is it true that engineers are excellent at writing?

No, it's not true, lots of engineers are very good with mathematics, physics and their engineering but they cannot write a good paper for their life.

No.


Is it possible for a person who's good at math to be bad in chemistry and physics and engineering?

Certainly! All he needs to do is slough off his chemistry, physics, and engineering classes, and he can fail them just as solidly as if he were poor at math.Yes, to be very good in chemistry and physics and engineering you have to be good in mathTo be good in math you do not have to be very good in chemistry or physics or engineering


Is it true that even if you are good at mathematics you will still fail physics chemistry and engineering?

No, it is not true. It is false. In order to PASS physics, chemistry, and engineering, you must be pretty good at mathematics.


Is it true that if you are good at math and economics you will fail physics chemistry and engineering?

I'm good at Math and I passed Chemistry.


Is it true that if you're good at math you will fail physics chemistry and engineering easily?

On the contrary, you NEED math, especially for physics and engineering.


Is it true that if you're good at math but bad at programming you will fail physics chemistry and engineering?

no


Will you fail physics and chemistry and engineering if you are good at math?

Math will help, not hinder, you in this. You actually need a LOT of math, especially for physics and engineering.


Is it true that if you are an individual who is good with mathematics but bad at essays you will fail physics as well as chemistry and engineering?

no


Is it true that if you are bad at essays but good at math and economics will fail physics chemistry and engineering?

Sounds backwards to me.


Is it true that if you are good at calculus you will fail physics chemistry and engineering?

No. The opposite is true. __________________ No; in fact, being good with math and calculus will make it much easier to understand physics and engineering. Chemistry doesn't require much in the way of advanced math.


Is it true that if you are good at mathematics you will fail physics and engineering?

You'll certainly not fail physics BECAUSE you are good at math - you NEED math for physics and engineering.


Does being good at mathematics handicap you from chemistry and physics and engineering?

You HAVE to be good at mathematics to be good at chemistry, physics and engineering. It's not a handicap, it's a necessity.
