March 22, 2016

The answer to that question is a resounding YES!

If you’ve ever wondered how maths and juggling may be connected, don’t miss your chance to see a man that has all the answers! Popular mathematician and lecturer, Colin Wright will be giving a talk tomorrow at Heythrop College from 8.45am.

“Disguised as an entertaining description of juggling and the Site Swap notation, the presentation is really about science and mathematics, how they work, what they mean, and why they’re important. The talk has been given in locations as diverse as New Zealand, Australia, Chicago, Seattle, Sweden, The Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, The Isle of Man, and all over mainland UK.”

Even if you’re not a mathematician, this talk will give you the opportunity to see maths in a fun, alternative way. The video below will give you a snippet of what to expect on the day
