How not to be wrong: The power of mathematical thinking

1 July, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£ (conc)

The maths we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. Jordan Ellenberg will show us how wrong this view is: Maths touches everything we do, allowing us to see the hidden structures beneath the messy and chaotic surface of our daily lives. Maths is the a science of not being wrong, worked out through centuries of hard work and argument.
