No my blog is more about problems than history. Visit it and join if you like. EPQ stands for extended project which is free standing qualification where you can write an essay on anything you like. I chose the history and applications of calculus. I am really enjoying it but its the paperwork that can get really annoying.
I chose not to do an EPQ, but your topic sounds fun. Would be interesting to read that once your finished.

IMHO Mathematics gave birth to physics. Science cannot be proved without mathematics. Even though physics births some mathematics, it is the mathematics which makes it possible, and provable. As Michael sing says in his book "Fermat’s last theorem", scientists make hypothesis on trial an error tests, which in an infinite amount of time, could be proved differently. Mathematicians prove something to be absolutely true, which is undeniable in all cases.

But you could also argue that matter itself was created by the laws of physics-big bang, etc. and then mathematics introduced order into the formed matter.

Wow, thats cool. I would really love to do a project on topics like history of mathematics, Calculus, etc.
Thats amazing. I have to say Ive never heard of free standing qualifications up until now, I'll check it out.

and in terms of calculus the water gets even muddier because some of the early developments of calculus were due to problems in physics. But most physicists were mathematicians in those times anyway . E.g. Kepler with his method indivisibles, obviously Newton etc.
