Here's Looking at Euclid
by Alex Bellos
Too often math gets a bad rap, characterized as dry and difficult. But, Alex Bellos says, "math can be inspiring and brilliantly creative. Mathematical thought is one of the great achievements of the human race, and arguably the foundation of all human progress. The world of mathematics is a remarkable place." Whether writing about how algebra solved Swedish traffic problems, visiting the Mental Calculation World Cup to disclose the secrets of lightning calculation, or exploring the links between pineapples and beautiful teeth, Bellos is a wonderfully engaging guide who never fails to delight. Here’s Looking at Euclid is a rare gem that brings the beauty of math to life.
Alex is an accomplished writer and mathematical communicator. He writes for The Guardian and has written numerous books on mathematics. His YouTube videos have registered more than 30 million views.
Participants should read Here's Looking at Euclid ahead of the event.
