From nutritional labels and box office statistics to terabytes and megapixels, the 21st century world is awash in numbers. How can the average Joe or Jane make sense of all that data? The key, Theoni Pappas argues, is math. In Mathematical Snippets, she draws readers into the fascinating world of math without overwhelming them with mind-numbing equations.
