The Maths Behind...

“Even knowledgeable mathematicians will learn something, and those who teach mathematics will find it invaluable in answering the question ‘when would you ever use maths in everyday life?’”

“The book manages to walk the line between being readable and demonstrating how [the maths] works very well”
Adam Townsend in Chalkdust

  • How does DNA testing work?
  • … and how do penguins stay warm?

The Maths Behind… takes a look at the mathematics behind the everyday, from sports to politics, from computers to shopping.
