    算数 is the general term for calculating numbers (plus, minus, times, divide). Also, "math" as a subject in elementary school is called 算数, too.

    数理 is theories or principles about numbers.

    お寺 ・ 寺
    お茶 ・ 茶
    お at the beginning of a word makes it polite.

    お風呂 ・ トイレ
    お風呂 is a bath or bathing.
    トイレ is restroom (no bath, no shower).

    お風呂場 is the room for bathing. A common Japanese お風呂場 has a soaking bathtub, separate shower, and a changing room.
