Navigating by numbers

by Ian Short

Today marks the launch of the Navigating by numbers outreach programme. The purpose of this programme is to communicate an attractive array of mathematical ideas centred on the Farey graph to as wide an audience as possible – from school learners to academic researchers.

My PhD student Margaret Stanier and I launched the programme with an interactive display at Maths Fest 2020, featuring origami, papier mâché, and my daughters’ Geomag.
