Maths With The Ancients

The latest brainchild of mathematician Nicholas Oram is proving to be a great hit with students attending the seminars at Willowbank School in Dannemora.    This totally unique mathematics workshop involves  a whirlwind trip into the past to explore a variety of measurement challenges!  Ever imagined how the first ruler was made?  It has to be exact - no point if it isn't - but how do you begin when you haven't yet got a ruler?

If you fancy a fast trip through Ancient Babylon, Greece, Egypt and of course the Roman Empire, along with your maths then Willowbank is clearly the place for you to be.    And you might not be too late to join in because more workshops are in the pipeline for September.
