Tes hidden principles that can help us understand and navigate the chaotic and often opaue surfaces of our world In The Math of Life and Death Yates takes us on a fascinating tour of everyday situations and grand scale applications of mathematical concepts including exponential growth and decay optimization statistics and probability and number systems Along the way he reveals the mathematical undersides of controversies o 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 themDisclaimers 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

This is a fantastic book on Mathematics but is a little bit advanced for novices It covers a lot of topics all of which amaze one when the maths behind them is revealed Of particular interest is the last chapter which deals with the modeling of pandemics this book was written before covid 19 became a thing Hig

I was never very good at math growing up in China where I never fully understood why I needed to do the proof of euations in math classes Now as a professional I am doing a job which forces me to work in math a lot Slowly seeing the magic of math everywhere from pharmaceutical to industrial production from sales to oil and gas and see the value math brings I started to appreciate it a lot This will be a book I want to send as a g

However approximately 85 percent of automated warnings in ICUs are false alarmsIf you're at all fascinated with numbers you will love this book There are no actual formulas in this book instead what it shows you is how math is a part of every aspect of our lives from medicine to law to sales This book is full of real life stories many you might know from hearing about them in the news and many others that ar

I have been a lifelong reader I love learning and this book was right in my lane enjoyed the new exposures

As a math nerd I am always looking for books that provide insight into the use of mathematics in our lives I skimmed through this book and found some interesting tidbits on disease exponents and statistics The examples and stories include a lot of visuals which helps but there is a lot of detail here than I personally needed since I was reading this book for fun

The Maths of Life and Death written by Kit Yates who is a senior lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and co director of the Centre for Mathematical Biology at the University of Bath aims to show that ‘maths is for everyone’ and that mathematics is ‘first and foremost a practical tool to make sense of our complex world‘ This is a mission that I’m definitely on board with I’m convinced that maths is the worst ta
