Greenwich and Gresham

University of Greenwich campus
On Wednesday I visited the School of Computing & Mathematical Sciences (CMS) at the University of Greenwich at the invitation of Noel-Ann Bradshaw, who amongst many other roles is involved with the Mathsoc at Greenwich and with the British Society for the History of Mathematics. I also spent time with Tony Mann, Head of Department and others. I had an interesting and useful day at Greenwich, which has a pleasant campus (pictured).

Noel-Ann and Tony are trying to engage students through maths history and run a Facebook group “Who invented mathematics?”

In the evening I attended a talk by Robin Wilson, Gresham Professor of Geometry at Gresham College on mathematical puzzles, which was interesting and entertaining. Gresham put on free public lectures on mathematics and other topics, which is a fabulous idea and more information can be found on the Gresham College website.
