Maths 4 Fun

We had a great meeting to start the new year exploring 4, 6, 8, 12 and 20 sided dice monopoly-board-game-1and the games they are used for. Hope you have all now honed your Monopoly skills and can beat the grandchildren hollow. If anyone still has bored youngsters to look after the best non-electronic game for the second year running seems to be Blokus, lots of coloured pieces on a scrabble type board. Takes around 30 seconds to learn, totally addictive for young and old alike, and full of hidden maths skills!

Next time – Wednesday 1st February – we will look at Maths in Art and discover the rules of perspective and composition that the classical masters knew. We will see how Fibonacci and the Golden Section appear from Michelangelo to Picasso and Mondrian, and how Escher managed to break the rules so successfully.

If you would like to join us please bring a pencil, ruler and rubber with you.

Remember         No Stress       Lots of Laughs
