Description

Mathematical Illiteracy and its consequences

From the back of the book:

Why do we know so little aboutĀ mathematics? And what is the social cost of our “innumeracy”? In this brilliantly entertaining book, John Allen Paulos argues that our inability to deal rationally with very large numbers or with the probabilities associated with them results in misinformed governmental policies, confused personal decisions, and an increased susceptibility to pseudo-sciences of all kinds. Innumeracy lets us know what we’re missing and how we can do something about it.
