From the smallest micro organism to the planets and the stars, life can be a wondrous journey of discovery where almost everywhere and everything is affected by numbers. Enter the exciting world of the Science of Mathematics with our host Danny Glover.

Probability...  Every day we face a world of possibilities using mathematics to make sense of our lives. Statistics are everywhere, data is crucial, can we predict the future? Which batter to face a certain pitcher? Which focus group recommends a product? From the Las Vegas casinos to political elections to the research laboratory to how much fuel will it take to fly to Alaska, understanding the probability of things is critical and guess what... it’s in the numbers.
