One Minute Mathematics provides quick answers to basic math and other quantitative analysis questions such as: What is absolute value? How can a Poisson Distribution help analyze customer wait times? and so on.
The fast answers available here can help you refresh long-forgotten knowledge or provide new insights that can make you a more successful job applicant, worker, or manager.
The 135 topics are arranged alphabetically (from 80-20 Rule and Absolute Value to Zero-Sum Games) so you can go straight to the subject of interest. Each topic is covered in one short web page and (with one possible exception) each is stand-alone so there is no need to read one topic before you read the next. There is almost no theory, and explanations rely on simple examples, not complex mumbo-jumbo.
The exception is for the topic Probability which may need to have its three main concepts reviewed sequentially. Here they are grouped together as Probability 1 (Discrete Probabilities), Probability 2 (Probability Density Functions), and Probability 3 (Cumulative Distribution Functions).
The coverage is wide, but not deep. Like an executive summary, it is designed to give you the basic concepts, not the particulars. Key words are in italics to quickly capture your eye. If this site sends you to the Internet for deeper knowledge, good.
Caution: Like any textbook, there may be errors in the information presented here despite our best efforts.
Note: Math quotes are included at the foot of each web page just because the "web master" likes them.
