Mathematics for Everyday Life

Cover ERCIM News April 2008
The latest ERCIM News is available and since the last issue highlighted on W2tQ I've been looking forward to this one. The copy covers Everyday Maths with articles on health and the human body pp.12-18, society pp.31-36 and much more. I was tantalised by The Continuum Hypothesis: A Mystery of Mathematics, p.37, which had me thinking - surely that is a mystery of the social sciences? ;-)

Something to contemplate in retirement that - reliving the pain of mathematical encounters as a youngster. I do plan to go back to school for maths - if granted the time. ...

What would it be like to see the world with true mathematical vision?
I wonder....?

P.S. Don't miss p.26 listed under Water and Weather 'Maths Improves Quality of Life: An Early-Warning System for Environmental Effects on Public Health'.
