There is a profound difference in that math is mostly about
making a series of static statements, universal or temporary
facts of relationships between things, while programming is all
about describing operations to be performed, even if hidden by
functional or object costume.
Math may use operators and functions, and programming sometimes
assertions of relations, which makes reality not so clean cut
simple, but this is the essential difference.
It does not serve any purpose to insist on closely similar
