*SELECTED AS ONE OF THE SUNDAY TIMES SCIENCE BOOKS OF THE YEAR* "This is an exquisitely interesting book. It's a deeply serious one too and, for those like me who have little maths, it's delightfully readable" - IAN MCEWAN "An exciting new voice in the world of science communication" - MARCUS DU SAUTOY "An extremely thoughtful, articulate and accessible insight into mathematics in the real world" - ALEX BELLOS "Kit Yates is a brilliant explainer and storyteller" - STEVEN STROGATZ __________ Maths is the story of the world around us, and the wisdom it gives us can be the difference between success and disaster. We are all doing maths all the time, from the way we communicate with each other to the way we travel, from how we work to how we relax. Many of us are aware of this. But few of us really appreciate the full power of maths - the extent to which its influence is not only in every office and every home, but also in every courtroom and hospital ward. In this eye-opening and extraordinary book, Yates explores the true stories of life-changing events in which the application - or misapplication - of mathematics has played a critical role: patients crippled by faulty genes and entrepreneurs bankrupted by faulty algorithms; innocent victims of miscarriages of justice and the unwitting victims of software glitches. We follow stories of investors who have lost fortunes and parents who have lost children, all because of mathematical misunderstandings. Along the way, Yates arms us with simple mathematical rules and tools that can help us make better decisions in our increasingly quantitative society. You will discover why it's always sensible to question a statistic, often vital to ask for a second opinion and sometimes surprisingly handy to stick to the 37% rule...

"Survival Math for Marketers is a simple and fun solution to the age-old problem of a lack of mathematical knowledge among marketing professionals. Many are former English, psychology, or science graduates who have become responsible for advertising, promotion, and sales in their organizations. Without a solid grounding in accounting, finance, mathematics, or economics, they often find themselves frustrated and confused by this unfamiliar world. This book provides an introduction to the underlying mathematical concepts in marketing and management in terms accessible to students of all levels. Weiglin also explains the relevant non-mathematical issues, such as price sensitivity, product distribution, and sales estimates, and provides the tools necessary to fully understand the basics of each. Presented in an irreverent, conversational style, this book includes numerous real-world examples and illustrations that gently introduce the reader to the important mathematical concepts behind marketing and management. Intended for students and professionals of all levels, Survival Math for Marketers is a fun, easy-to-read introduction to the world of business math.

Experimental Design for the Life Sciences teaches the reader how to effectively design experiments to ensure today's students are equipped with the skills they need to be the researchers of tomorrow. With a refreshingly approachable and articulate style, the book explains the essential elements of experimental design in clear, practical terms, so the reader can grasp and apply even the most challenging concepts, including power analysis andpseudoreplication. The inter-relatedness of experimental design, statistics, and ethical considerations is emphasised throughout the book and, above all, Experimental Design for the Life Sciencesdemonstrates how good experimental design relies on clear thinking and biological understanding, not mathematical or statistical complexity - putting it at the heart of any biosciences student's education.

This book presents the generative rules for formal written communication, in an engineering context, through the lens of mathematics. Aimed at engineering students headed for careers in industry and professionals needing a “just in time” writing resource, this pragmatic text covers all that engineers need to become successful workplace writers, and leaves out all pedagogical piffle they do not. Organized into three levels of skill-specific instruction, A Math-Based Writing System for Engineers: Sentence Algebra & Document Algorithms guides readers through the process of building accurate, precise sentences to structuring efficient, effective reports. The book’s indexed design provides convenient access for both selective and comprehensive readers, and is ideal for university students; professionals seeking a thorough, “left -brained” treatment of English grammar and “go to” document structures; and ESL engineers at all levels.

Money Run it Not Run After it

There are many books talking about money. How to get rich, financial planning, finance management, investments, insurance, tax planning, stocks trading, technical analysis, bonds, asset management and the list goes on. This is not such a book and it is not a “Get Rich Quick” formula book. I really hope there is such a formula but truthfully, I do not believe there is such a thing. Yes, it is possible to get rich but it is neither simple nor quick and there is definitely no sure fire formula to it. On the other hand though, there is certainly an easy way to “Become Poor Quick”. This is where this book comes to rescue, it aims to provide an understanding of the key concepts behind money management, impart the basic principles of managing money and provide some simple tools and exercise to prevent people from squandering off their money. Much like the “Seven Habits of Successful People”, once the basic principles are mastered or have become habits, you will be able to deal with anything involving money without getting into an undesirable situation. A lot of people will say what’s so hard about this but contrary to popular belief, the basic principles are sometimes the hardest ones to grasp and master. Often, people zoom into the details, dream about how to get rich quickly and forget the basic principles getting themselves burnt in the process. Education as they say it is the key out of poverty. However, even though many of us go through the normal education process, some all the way up to university, I realise that we are never formally educated in managing our money. Many, if not all of us, learn about managing money the hard way, through experience or what some may call the school of hard knocks. Although nothing beats learning through experience, it is human’s ability to build on the experience of our predecessors that have allowed us to progress. There are many books talking about money but I realise that most focus on the greed of human and try to make a quick buck out of telling people how to get rich quick. I could not find any book out there that imparts people with the most basic skills of money management. What I call the primary and foundation skills that everyone ought to possess regardless of their education level. These are the skills which I wish I have been taught when I was younger rather than to learn them through the hard way. So this is the main reason why I wrote this book, I hope that it will help to guide others along on money management so that they may avoid the pitfalls that so many of those who went before (including myself) have made.

Science is fundamentally about learning from data, and doing so in the presence of uncertainty. This volume is an introduction to the major concepts of probability and statistics, and the computational tools for analysing and interpreting data. It describes the Bayesian approach, and explains how this can be used to fit and compare models in a range of problems. Topics covered include regression, parameter estimation, model assessment, and Monte Carlo methods, as well as widely used classical methods such as regularization and hypothesis testing. The emphasis throughout is on the principles, the unifying probabilistic approach, and showing how the methods can be implemented in practice. R code (with explanations) is included and is available online, so readers can reproduce the plots and results for themselves. Aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students, these techniques can be applied to a wide range of data analysis problems beyond the scope of this work.

This book is a captivating account of a professional mathematician's experiences conducting a math circle for preschoolers in his apartment in Moscow in the 1980s. As anyone who has taught or raised young children knows, mathematical education for little kids is a real mystery. What are they capable of? What should they learn first? How hard should they work? Should they even "work" at all? Should we push them, or just let them be? There are no correct answers to these questions, and the author deals with them in classic math-circle style: he doesn't ask and then answer a question, but shows us a problem--be it mathematical or pedagogical--and describes to us what happened. His book is a narrative about what he did, what he tried, what worked, what failed, but most important, what the kids experienced. This book does not purport to show you how to create precocious high achievers. It is just one person's story about things he tried with a half-dozen young children. Mathematicians, psychologists, educators, parents, and everybody interested in the intellectual development in young children will find this book to be an invaluable, inspiring resource. In the interest of fostering a greater awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life, MSRI and the AMS are publishing books in the Mathematical Circles Library series as a service to young people, their parents and teachers, and the mathematics profession. Titles in this series are co-published with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI).

Mathematics is all around us. We use mathematical processes from the time we get up in the morning until right before we go to sleep. An understanding of mathematical concepts helps students to arrive at school on time, order their lunch, purchase a CD, go to the movies, hire a DVD, deposit money into a bank account, pay for an excursion and even watch a favorite TV program. Students also learn that adults need a firm understanding of mathematics to help them complete everyday tasks such as purchasing a home, shopping at the supermarket, sailing a boat, flying a plane, putting fuel in the car, cooking a meal, planning an overseas trip and paying the bills.
