At school, i.e. in classical physics, those laws are often proportional dependences like ##P\sim T## or ##U\sim R##. In particle physics and cosmology those laws become more complicated and need more framework, but the basic principle is still the same.

What do you think physics is, or how else could it be done?

Odds of success in physics are much, much smaller for those who avoid it.

I guess it is hypothetically possible to succeed as some kind of experimentalist without mathematical modeling, but I cannot think of any real examples of physicists who have done it.
