Schrodinger's equation uses a wave function to describe the electrons in an atom since electrons have wavelike properties.

Schrodinger’s equation uses a wave function to describe an electron because of its wavelike properties and indeterminacy in momentum and position. The wave function represents the orbital (position) that and electron can be found.

Do we just have to know the concepts behind Schrodinger's equation? Or do we have to know all of the math behind it as well?

I believe we just need to understand the concepts behind the equation.
