𝙒𝙝𝙮 𝙞𝙨 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙨 𝙨𝙪𝙙𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙡𝙮 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙤𝙤𝙡? For most people 2020 was a year to forget but for mathematicians it was the year when the world remembered the importance of maths skills.
𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙨 𝙜𝙤𝙚𝙨 𝙢𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙢 It was the year when statisticians became regular reporters on television news bulletins, when graphs filled screens and R numbers became conversation topics.
𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙖 When governments policies became more visual than ever, the correlation between available data and the policies based on that data became more public than ever before. Suddenly, the general public was scrutinising the data more closely than ever before and questioning the extrapolation of the curves. Numbers were being used to chart narratives and to tell stories.
𝘼 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙 Debates over algorithms - and the policies they produced - became intense, as fury over forecast GCSE and A Level results in the U.K. demonstrated. Mathematical modelling and spreadsheets took centre stage with populations attempting to understand a strange new world. We all wanted to look ahead to the next stage on the graphs. Would the economic recovery, when it finally came, be V shaped, or more worryingly L shaped Meanwhile, the actuaries calculating risks, our insurance premiums and payouts, suddenly had a new range of situations to quantify.
