Show Summary

Applied Mathematics is an educational TV show that focuses on solving problems, math problems that is. Canadian science journalist Bob McDonald and actress Judy Haladay head to PBS TV to solve some equations and explain how they relate to science and business. The season opens with viewers learning about problem-solving techniques and how to work with business and trigonometric calculators. McDonald then focuses on estimating, using mathematical graphs and charts to show viewers how to summate equations without exact numbers. Haladay takes on geometry in the next segment with a short lesson on lines and angles and drawing them both in second and third dimensions. By mid-season, the hosts enter discussions on more complicated math subjects, including powers and roots, vectors, and scientific notation. The math enthusiast watching can reinforce his or her skills even more when McDonald and Haladay end the season with discussions on liner equations, statistics, trigonometric functions and their places in the modern-day society.
