Interviews with Mathematical Minds

This category of post will include Q & A’s with mathematically comfortable scientists who are interesting to talk with and who are very good at explaining how numbers work and how to let them work for you.

Stay tuned for a conversation with the marvelous Dr. David Streiner, teacher and co-author of funny (really) and easy to understand (really) books and article on statistics.


Birth of the Blog

This blog, like the book Lab Math from which it springs (incompletely formed), will be about numbers. I will endeavor to:

1. showcase the basic and the practical, not the challenging or even the advanced;

2.. provide straightforward guidance for the unenthusiastic (“just do it exactly this way”);

3.. provide refreshers for those needing refreshment (whether they know it or not.)
