Mathematical Art: Friday 13th November, 10am

Clarissa Grandi is the undisputed Queen of Mathematical Art, and she has very kindly agreed to run an exclusive maths art class for Maths Week England. Details to follow – but suitable for Years 5 to 9 (or anyone else who cares to give it a go!) All attendees will need a sharp pencil, a ruler, and a pair of compasses.

(NB: Anyone who brings a compass instead of a pair of compasses will NOT be able to access the class, but WILL at least have a very clear idea of which direction is North).

For a sense of how good a teacher Clarissa is, check out this first attempt at drawing, from someone who attended one of Clarissa’s webinars and who hadn’t drawn anything for over 40 years because their art teacher had dismissed them as useless:

Puzzling Maths

Rob Eastaway and Andrew Jeffrey love maths – and love puzzles – so this seemed like an obvious thing to do. Each episode features mini-puzzles as well as a ‘answer-next-episode’ puzzle. Lots of chat about maths beyond the classroom as well as the odd interesting guest.
