I didn't think about the Weird Science skill when writing this world. Weird Science capped at a character's highest Mathematics specialty would be a good way to represent this world. In that case, ability activation rolls would be based on Weird Science instead.

The main reason that I mentioned Gadgeteer was for the decreased investment cost and potential for increasing TL. But it is plausible for Weird Science mathematics to advance technological development due to its knock on effects.
