Florence Nightingale Day
Statistics is the most important science in the whole world: for upon it depends the practical application of every other science and of every art: the one science essential to all political and social administration, all education, all organization based on experience, for it only gives results of our experience.
Watch this performance of a biographical tribute song to learn more about Florence Nightingale.
Written and performed by Dr. Lawrence (Larry) Lesser, Professor, Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Texas El Paso
