Speaker: Paul Stevenson (University of Surrey)
Are the sorts of equations which make the news every now and then helpful in portraying maths and science in a favourable light, and what do they say about our numeracy?
Paul will be talking about the use of maths in describing everyday things, such as how to walk in high-heels, eat with chopsticks, choose the perfect beach or park a car.
