No Formulas Just Numb3rs In this book about how math shapes our lives, British math professor Yates doesn t take us into the algebra, geometry, and even trigonometry that we all use daily whether we realize it or not Instead, he takes an approach similar to the now decade old US television show Numb3rs, starring David Krumholtz and Rob Morrow, wherein he shows applications of higher level mathematics in fields such as epidemiology, medicine, law, journalism, elections, and several others Yates cites real world examples including unjust convictions and Ebola outbreaks and many others to show how math was used incorrectly and what the math actually showed in that situation, to help the reader begin to get an overall sense of math without getting bogged down in the technical calculations Truly an excellent book for even the arithmophobic among us, as it shows the numbers all around us and explains how we can have a better sense of them.Disclaimers 1 I LOVED Numb3rs back in the day and would still be watching it if it were still on the air 2 I have a computer science degree and very nearly got secondary mathematics education and mathematics bachelors degrees at the same time as my CS one so obviously I m a bit attuned to math than others. *Download Book ⇰ The Math of Life and Death ☘ A Brilliant And Entertaining Mathematician Illuminates Seven Mathematical Principles That Shape Our Lives Kit Yates Shows How Our Private And Social Lives Are Suffused By Mathematics Ignorance May Bring Tragedy Or Farce This Is An Exquisitely Interesting Book It S A Deeply Serious One Too And, For Those Like Me Who Have Little Math, It S Delightfully Readable Ian McEwan, Author Of Atonement Kit Yates Is A Natural Storyteller Through Fascinating Stories And Examples, He Shows How Maths Is The Beating Heart Of So Much Of Modern Life An Exciting New Voice In The World Of Science Communication Marcus Du Sautoy, Author Of The Music Of The PrimesFrom Birthdays And Birth Rates To How We Perceive The Passing Of Time, To Overpopulation, The Spread Of Disease, And Freak Accidents, Math Underpins Every Aspect Of Our Lives From Cradle To Grave Many Of Us Are Aware Of This, At Least Through High School, But Few Of Us Really Appreciate The Full Power Of Math At Work In Every Office, Home, Court Room, And Hospital Ward In This Eye Opening And Extraordinary Book, Mathematical Biologist Kit Yates Explores True Stories Of Life Changing Events In Which The Application Or Misapplication Of Math Has Played A Critical Role Within Each Chapter, Kit Yates Takes Us On A Brilliant Tour Of Light Hearted, Simple Everyday Situations To Serious, Grand Scale Applications Of Seven Mathematical Concepts, Including Exponential Growth And Decay, Optimization, Statistics And Probability, And Number Systems At Every Turn, He Reveals The Mathematical Undersides Of Controversies Over DNA Testing, Medical Screening Results, And Events Like The Chernobyl Disaster And The Amanda Knox Trial Readers Will Finish This Book With An Enlightened Perspective And A Tighter Grasp On The Hidden Intricacies Of The World Around Them And Will Be Better Equipped To Make Personal Decisions With Math In Mind, Everything From Finding The Best Seat On The Train To Halting The Spread Of A Deadly Disease Fever For Those Like Me Who Have Little Math Placenta the Forgotten Chakra It S Delightfully Readable Ian McEwan Managing Enterprise Content Author Of Atonement Kit Yates Is A Natural Storyteller Through Fascinating Stories And Examples Gradus He Shows How Maths Is The Beating Heart Of So Much Of Modern Life An Exciting New Voice In The World Of Science Communication Marcus Du Sautoy New & Selected Poems Author Of The Music Of The PrimesFrom Birthdays And Birth Rates To How We Perceive The Passing Of Time The Spooks Bestiary To Overpopulation Filth The Spread Of Disease The Armies And Freak Accidents Degas Math Underpins Every Aspect Of Our Lives From Cradle To Grave Many Of Us Are Aware Of This The Lord of the Rings At Least Through High School Deff Skwadron (Warhammer 40,000 Graphic Novel) But Few Of Us Really Appreciate The Full Power Of Math At Work In Every Office Wszyscy jesteśmy Meekhańczykami Home Hans Christian Andersen Court Room God the Unknown And Hospital Ward In This Eye Opening And Extraordinary Book The Jackie Collins Gift Set Mathematical Biologist Kit Yates Explores True Stories Of Life Changing Events In Which The Application Or Misapplication Of Math Has Played A Critical Role Within Each Chapter Baśnie z 1001 nocy Kit Yates Takes Us On A Brilliant Tour Of Light Hearted J.R.R.
