Description: Can you believe it: mathematics in the same company as the U.S. primetime television shows Beverly Hills 90210, Spin City, The Nanny, and Star Trek: Voyager? That unusual juxtaposition will happen in coming weeks when the Public Broadcasting System airs the new miniseries Life by the Numbers. Hosted and narrated by actor Danny Glover, the seven hour-long programs represent an effort to give mathematics a fresh public image - as an exciting, empowering, playful, creative, and imaginative pursuit.
