A Mathematical Guide to the World’s Most Livable Cities

A Mathematical Guide to the World’s Most Livable Cities | Creative Concepts for Developing Mathematical Literacy | Scoop.it
Can quality of urban life be boiled down to a formula?

Most people might think of a city such as Paris or Tokyo as a unique entity, with a character that is distinct from other metropolises. But large cities, towns and even smaller villages also share common purpose: they strive to provide a good place to live. Urban planners are trying to find a way to bring mathematical rigor to analyzing how well a city accomplishes this universal goal.

Statistics can dispel global misconceptions, unveil truths

Statistics can dispel global misconceptions, unveil truths | Creative Concepts for Developing Mathematical Literacy | Scoop.it
To Rosling, a physician and co-founder of the Gapminder Foundation, busting myths is a full-time job. It often keeps him on the road despite his professorship in international health at the Karolinska Institutet near Stockholm. One myth he often takes aim at is the misperception that the world is divided in two, with struggling, developing nations in one camp and wealthy industrial nations in another. The truth is, Rosling said, that the world is a complicated quilt of nations. We may miss how some of them achieve little-seen advances in income, infant mortality, literacy, and other measures of success.
