Change is the one constant in life. How can mathematics bring some certainty to variation? Biostatistician Gerald van Belle shares everyday stories and interactive activities that highlight the sometimes surprising analysis of variability. Reinforcing planes in warfare, walking or running in the rain, storks and babies, missing data, and more — see how a mathematical lens helps shed new light on the study of change.
Featuring a special introduction by Gerard T. van Belle, Chief Scientist, Navy Precision Optical Interferometer.
