Synopsis

Our world has become more complicated, and the notion of growth at any cost has led to constant economic uncertainty, a permanently stressed-out workforce, and everyday stories of government and corporate abuse. Author John K. White argues that a better knowledge of basic systems is needed to understand the world we live in, from pyramid scams to government bailouts, from sports leagues to stock markets, from the everyday to the seemingly complex.



Do the Math! is a fresh look at the numbers of daily living, providing a thought-provoking guide to better understanding the world around us and enlightening consumers about misleading practice. Numerous creative examples and illustrative figures help to explain the realities of our ever-confusing mathematical world, and modern economic and contemporary social issues link mathematical concepts to real-world examples.

John K. White (Ph.D.) has a B.Sc. from the University of Waterloo, Canada, and a Ph.D. from University College, Dublin in Applied Physics. Currently, he is a lecturer and Research Fellow at University College, Dublin. However, over the past 25 years, he has also worked as Project Manager and Technical Writer for Sun Microsystems, as a Computational Analysis/Technical Writer for Berminghammer Foundation, Consultant for Interactive Image Technologies for ScotiaBank, and Programmer/Computational analyst for the Ontario Government. He has a wide range of interests and is also active in promoting science and physics in secondary schools. He has published widely in a range of areas in academic journals, has contributed chapters to edited volumes, and has authored a number of technical publications.
