Yup, sounds good, but two small notes:
Should be:
chmod a+x =96 (not a-x)
And you can run the script from a directory outside of your PATH if you do:
./math.m
or if you're in another folder:
../path/to/math.m
But I'm guessing you wanted this to be a script that would be available
from any folder with ease in which case yes, you should put it in your PATH.
You might find the Bash guide useful:
http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-Guide/html/ for solving such problems in
the future.
Best,
Morgan
