Cafe Sci: What Maths has done for us

Snezana Lawrence

Bath Spa University

I will be talking about how knowing the cultural context of mathematical practice and inventions makes mathematics itself meaningful and engaging for the learners (of any ages). The examples of mathematicians and mathematics from antiquity to our times will be discussed, and the audience will have the time to contribute with their experience of the interactions with mathematicians that fall into the categories proposed.

MEETING FORMAT: Our speaker talks, uninterrupted for 20 minutes, to introduce his topic. During a break to get drinks, the Hat goes round. Then there is an hour’s chaired question and answer session. Cafe Sci is funded by the Hat (no sponsors). We suggest a contribution £5 (waged) or £2 - £3 (unwaged). Full details here

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
