1st Fridays 10:00 to 12:00
No Fixed Venue
We are a group who love Mathematics. A few are retired mathematicians but many derive their interest in mathematics from careers in engineering.
We enjoy revisiting topics we may not have felt very strong about in school or at college, sharing our enthusiasm with each other. Our emphasis is on mathematics that describes what goes on in the real world.
Our activities include making mechanical models, such as Meccano Differential Analyser, recreation of Napier’s Bones as well as investigating the properties of the non-transitive dice!
We have also looked at the mathematics behind the tides and the weather.
