Story Telling in Mathematics

Story telling in mathematics can be a fascinating way to draw connections between mathematical discoveries (or inventions!) and the needs of the times they were emerging.

Ioanna Georgiou will discuss some of the stories that have been used in teaching and workshops, and that feature in “Mathematical Adventures!” and “Peculiar Deaths of Famous Mathematicians”, her two illustrated children’s books with special focus on Greek mathematicians.
