The doubling time of a disease is the time it takes for the number of cases of the disease to double. How do you calculate it?
What is the growth rate and what does it tell us about an epidemic?
Don't like plant-based meat alternatives, but want to spare animals and the environment? There's hope on the horizon, aided by a good helping of maths.
We guide you through an exciting recent breakthrough in the world of topology, involving something called the telescope conjecture.
