17 Equations That Changed the World

My daughter is always saying, "but I'll never use math in real life". My contention is that we use math in real life every day.

Mathematician Ian Stewart's 2013 book, "In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations That Changed the World" talks about the impact the above equations have had on the course of history.

If you like a short summary of each of the equations, the article "The 17 equations that changed the course of history" from Business Inside does a very nice job.
