Friday on Lake Effect: Math Is All Around Us, Musician Zachary Scott Johnson

Friday on Lake Effect:

Two new books tell lesser-known stories about things we thought we knew well. First the story of how four women were involved in the war effort on both sides during the Civil War. Later, a Wisconsin mathematician’s new book explains how math is all around us, all the time. We’ll have the latest installment in our Listening to Mitchell series. And music performed in studio by Racine native Zachary Scot Johnson.
