So, there’s this math guru named Larry Shiller.
Apparently, he’s created a whole math curriculum to help school kids.
On his website, he also offers podcasts about “the math behind the news.” An interesting idea…
He’s done one on “Muslim math,” focusing on the fact that most countries are home to either many Muslims or very few. The effect, he points out, is that the amount of contact that Muslims have with others Ã¢â‚¬â€ in a worldwide sense Ã¢â‚¬â€ is not that great. And it’s hard to build relationships without day-to-day contact.
The U.S. is the place where this can change as the Muslim community grows.
