## Curling: The sport of mathematicians

Tomorrow marks the beginning of events at the Beijing Winter Olympics, and boy am I excited.

On particular highlight though, was MathsJamJam. When MathsJam is in person, people bring their instruments and have a sing along to songs from the ever-evolving MathsJamJam song book. SongsContinue reading “Integrating: MathsJamJam”

## Illegal Maths?

As mathematicians, we often like dealing with absolute truths. There are Platonic solids that’s never going to change. We can be certain that the angle in a semi circle is a right-angle. and that’s a fact*. But what happens when people try to enshrine mathematical truths into law. Or worse, what happens when people tryContinue reading “Illegal Maths?”
