About the Original Book:
For anyone who knows what they are doing, math is a vehicle to determine the age of things, predict the course of pandemics, and even catch murderers. Experts might make these processes sound complex, but as it turns out, the math at the root of it is within anyone’s grasp. In The Math of Life and Death, Yates explores the seven mathematical principles that affect our lives, presenting them as if to a Math 101 class. Using analogies that are both relatable and captivating, he shows us the power of math in everything from the courtroom to the doctor’s office.
