            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.

            Uncertainty is everywhere. It lurks in every consideration of the future - the weather, the economy, the sex of an unborn child - even quantities we think that we know such as populations or the transit of the planets contain the possibility of error. It's no wonder that, through...out that history, we have attempted to produce rigidly defined areas of uncertainty - we prefer the surprise party to the surprise asteroid. We began our quest to make certain an uncertain world by reading omens in livers, tea leaves, and the stars. However, over the centuries, driven by curiosity, competition, and a desire be better gamblers, pioneering mathematicians and scientists began to reduce wild uncertainties to tame distributions of probability and statistical inferences. But, even as unknown unknowns became known unknowns, our pessimism made us believe that some problems were unsolvable and our intuition misled us. Worse, as we realized how omnipresent and varied uncertainty is, we encountered chaos, quantum mechanics, and the limitations of our predictive power. Bestselling author Professor Ian Stewart explores the history and mathematics of uncertainty. Touching on gambling, probability, statistics, financial and weather forecasts, censuses, medical studies, chaos, quantum physics, and climate, he makes one thing clear: a reasonable probability is the only certainty.
