Open University @ Maths Week Scotland: Navigating by Numbers
Join Dr Ian Short, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at the Open University, for an exploration of numbers and geometry.
Our exploration will take us from intriguing frieze patterns of numbers, through triangulated polygons and repeated fractions, to a beautiful infinite tessellation with remarkable properties. Along the way we will meet the mathematicians who forged this path of discovery, and we will get a taste of deeper aspects of the subject.
The event will take place using Zoom. A link will be provided by email by the event organiser.
Suggested age suitability: 14+ years old.
