In collaboration with the National Museum of Mathematics (MOMATH) in New York and the University of Leeds, MATHSWORLDUK are hosting the MATRIX conference September 1st-3rd, 2016 in Leeds.
A MATHSWORLDUK team of six helpers participated in a very successful Science Fair at Leeds City Museum on Saturday April 2nd and had close to 900 visitors, mainly families. The exhibits included constructing Platonic solids, a Maths in Medicine Quiz, and the Tautochrone.
Members of the Executive have continued to build contacts both in Yorkshire and in London, as well as with museums and science centres around the UK. We have had three recent meetings with staff at the Science Museum and will be meeting with the Director of the National Media Museum in Bradford in May. We have given presentations at the University of Manchester, Imperial College London and the British Society for the History of Mathematics. We are also extending our links with maths museums overseas and will be participating in the Imaginary Conference in Berlin in July 2016.
