Great Mathematical Diagrams - with MA President Dr Chris Pritchard
President of the Mathematical Association 2021
The talk is a journey through mathematical diagrams, some famed for their importance and longevity, some critical for the information they convey and many of them just plain clever. Join me for a look at a range of visual material from the Bride’s Chair of Euclid’s Elements to the Königsberg bridges and from Playfair’s pie chart to Anscombe’s salutary lesson, whilst also enjoying some "proofs without words" which can be deployed profitably in the classroom.
Audience: Year 11 up, teachers and all interested in mathematics
