John Haigh set up the module Mathematics In Everyday Life at Sussex University in 2005, in response to a desire to show First Year students some of the areas where their mathematical skills and knowledge could provide useful insight, and to give them practice in applying the mathematics they were learning on other modules. This book has the benefit of feedback from several cohorts of students. John has also written the well-received Popular Science book Taking Chances and, with Rob Eastaway, The Hidden Mathematics of Sport .
