Math in Hospitals

Anemia is the most common disorder of the blood. People with anemia often don't realize they have the disease until the symptoms are serious and dangerous, but a collaboration between a physician-researcher and a mathematician may disrupt this pattern.

Read more about the mathematical analysis that can predict who will become anemic almost 3 months before anyone usually starts noticing symptoms.

The most common question students ask math teachers at every level is “When will I use math?” WeUseMath.org is a non-profit website that helps to answer this question. This website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career opportunities available to students who study mathematics.
