While Mathematics Stack Exchange exists, I discovered that there's another Stack Exchange website called Mathematica Stack Exchange, that has a very similar name to the other website. Both of these Stack Exchange websites seem to be on the topic of math, but what are the exact differences between them?

    In general, if you're ever unsure what a specific exchange site is about you can go to their Help Center > "What topics can I ask about here?" article and that will explain. – BSMP Jun 13 at 1:05

    The About page (now called "Tour", with "/tour" appended to the URL) on every Stack Exchange site is not always very informative, but in this case it says "Mathematica Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Wolfram Mathematica and the Wolfram Language.". – P.Mort. - forgot Clay Shirky_q Jun 13 at 10:42

Mathematica is a distinct programming language/platform. The site isn't for math - and you can find out more about the site's scope in their help center.

We do have two maths sites - and you can find the difference between the two - Mathematics and MathOverflow here, but Mathematica is not one of them.
