The Calculus Diaries : A Year Discovering How Maths Can Help You Lose Weight, Win in Vegas, and Survive a Zombie Apocalypse Paperback

Description

Jennifer Ouellette never took maths in the sixth form, mostly because she - like most of us - assumed she wouldn't need it much in real life.

But then the English graduate, now an award-winning science-writer, had a change of heart and decided to revisit the equations and formulas that had haunted her youth.

The Calculus Diaries is the fun and fascinating account of a year spent confronting her numbers-phobia head on.

With wit and verve, Ouellette explains how she discovered that maths could apply to everything from petrol mileages to dieting, rollercoaster rides to winning in Las Vegas.
