Virtual lecture with David Sumpter: 10 ways maths can improve your life
Prof David Sumpter joins us on 3 December to reveal the 10 equations that rule the world, and how to use them.
How learning just 10 equations can improve your life.
When we think of the secrets to a happy life, learning more maths is not top of the agenda. But David Sumpter will show how a small number of equations (10 of them in fact) rule many aspects of the world, from betting and sports to social media and technology.
If we can learn them, then we will not only understand how the world around us works, but also make better judgements, get greater balance in life, and make better decisions.
With examples ranging from staying calm during an epidemic to deciding when to make a change in your job or relationship, David will illustrate how maths can help you improve your life.
