You sound dismissive, but symbolic expressions are just one part of
it, and not at all what this thread has been about. There are plenty
of other types of mathematical objects important in scientific
computation. This thread has been about geometric objects such as
curves, and in particular trajectories as numerical solutions to
differential equations.
