Mathematical Objects Roadshow

MathsJam Conference 2020 (21/11/2020). With Katie Steckles.

An interactive session. Abstract:
A mathematical object could represent or come from mathematical principles, and may or may not exist in the physical world. There are also everyday objects that have mathematics hidden behind them, or from which a mathematical conversation can emerge. You are invited to bring an object to our table for a chat about the mathematics visible or hidden or inspired by it with Katie Steckles and Peter Rowlett, hosts of the Mathematical Objects podcast. We imagine a long line of people clutching family heirlooms found in their attics.
