Real life situations for mathematics

 
These real life situations will help you to explore the nature of knowledge in mathematics, as well as keeping you up-to-date with the latest debates and discussions related to the subject. We have provided a suggested knowledge question for each one, but please note that these are (mostly) designed simply to prompt debate and discussion, and provide a route into the relevant issues.
