            What makes a bridge wobble when it's not meant to? How do billions of dollars mysteriously vanish into thin air? How does a building rock when its resonant frequency matches a gym class leaping to Snap's 1990 hit I've Got The Power? The answer is maths. Or, to be precise, what ha...ppens when maths goes wrong in the real world. As Matt Parker shows us, our modern lives are built on maths: computer programmes, finance, engineering. And most of the time this maths works quietly behind the scenes, until ... it doesn't. Exploring and explaining a litany of glitches, near-misses and mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman empire and a hapless Olympic shooting team, Matt Parker shows us the bizarre ways maths trips us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. This book shows how, by making maths our friend, we can learn from its pitfalls. It also contains puzzles, challenges, geometric socks, jokes about binary code and three deliberate mistakes. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.

            How math helps us solve the universe's deepest mysteries You must be able to test any physical theory in the real world. To most physicists, this is obvious. But since the 1980s, experimental physics has yielded vanishingly little insight into the fundamental physics of the unive...rse. Meanwhile, some physicists have begun to probe the universe not with proton beams, but with pure math. They're less concerned with testable theories than with the drive to explain nature with mathematical beauty. This approach is often pilloried by traditional scientists, who point out that such approaches have yet to make a correct prediction about the real world. But in The Universe Speaks in Numbers, Graham Farmelo offers a gripping tour of the history of math-based physics and explores why it may be the key to the next big breakthrough in our understanding of the nature of reality

            At a time when two-thirds of American high school students are not proficient in math, this book comes to the rescue of math-phobes of all ages. Whether you are a college student struggling to fulfill a math requirement or a professional in a field requiring high-level analytic s...kills, A Mind for Numbers is geared toward anyone who has ever been intimidated by math. Barbara Oakley, a successful engineering professor who once flunked her way through high school math and science classes, understands this audience well. Offering insights in neuroscience and cognitive psychology, Dr. Oakley teaches us how to fully utilize the right side of the brain (for creative, big-picture thinking), as well as the analytical left side (for problem solving). She addresses common stumbling blocks to approaching math and science, and shows us how to use our personal learning style to its fullest advantage.
