If you are interested in joining us at Portsmouth MathsJam please contact us.
The next MathsJam evening is Tuesday 24 May 2016.
Following the closure of our usual venue, the King Street Tavern, we have yet to arrange an alternative venue, so time and place are not yet confirmed.
I’ll post details here once they’re known.
MathsJam, 17 November 2015
A few links from last night’s meeting:
Chalkdust magazine. Includes their excellent crossnumber.
Geometry puzzle. Via Alison Kiddle.
Five 3-4-5 triangles. I think the challenge is to arrange the five equal-sized triangles into a symmetrical shape: reference.
Next meeting: Tuesday 15 December
Next meeting: Tuesday, 20 October
The next Portsmouth MathsJam will be on Tuesday 20 October from 7.30 p.m. in the King Street Tavern, Southsea.
Last time we attempted to solve a Rubik’s Tangle, enjoyed a game of Set and tried to prove the trigonometric identity:
Join us for more of the same this month.
July Meeting Cancelled
Although we hoped to rearrange our July meeting to today (see previous post) not enough people can make this date and so there will be no Portsmouth MathsJam this month.
We will hold our next meeting on the usual date of 18 August.
You can still follow @MathsJam on Twitter, and on 21 July you’ll be able to see and join in with what’s going on at other MathsJam meetings in the UK and the rest of the world.
July meeting date change
In July we are unable to hold our meeting on the usual MathsJam day – the second to last Tuesday – which would be 21 July 2015. Rather than have no meeting at all, we will bring the meeting date forward one week to Tuesday 14 July 2015.
The location and start time remain the same: King Street Tavern, Southsea, from 7.30 p.m.
Next meeting: Tuesday, 19 May
I apologise for having not updated the blog this month, and for this very short notice of…
