A Short Course in Numeracy

Many letter writers in The Union seem to have problems with logic, and the quantitative skills necessary for dealing with numbers. For those challenged by Chance, Uncertainty, and Risk in Everyday Life -- help is on the way. The County Library and Nevada City Rotary is sponsoring a short course in Numeracy, presented by Dr. George Rebane and other professional community lecturers. Four separate sessions are scheduled at the Madelyn Helling Library Community Room in Nevada City on:
March 24th
April 21st
May 19th
June 16th
No sign up is necessary. Just come and learn how to deal with the numbers that drive our lives, that business depends on, and the government uses to scares us. With these new numeracy skills you may even win an argument, or two, with your know it all in-laws or co-workers. See you at the Library.
