GIRLS IN MATHS -- FROM THE GROUND UP!

[http://staticapp.icpsc.com/icp/loadimage.php/mogile/1261883/2bbb33f2fc37d15dee0e5b983020a33f/image/jpeg]On April 28 AMSI and BHP Billiton Foundation launched Choose Maths - a $22m project aimed to lift the maths performance of girls in schools and help them into male-dominated science, technology and engineering careers.

Andrew Mackenzie, CEO BHP Billiton, sees mathematics as a key to the nation's future prosperity - something AMSI has been championing for over a decade. AMSI board member Lily Serna, spoke about her experience of being a girl in maths and reminded us all that there is no difference in mathematical ability between girls and boys.

SENSICAL NONSENSE, THE MATHS IN WONDERLAND



Lewis Carroll was but a pen name for mathematician Charles Lutewidge Dogdson. And his tales of Alice in Wonderland are full of mathematical inverses, logical tricks and immortal adventures.



AMSI's Stephanie Pradier joined scientists and Robyn Williams to peer through the looking glass into Carroll's mathematical history in the Science Show's "They wrote for children, but they also did science." Broadcast on ABC Radio National, Saturday May 9.

HYPERBOLICALLY TILE ANY IMAGE

After playing around with our P's and Q's we settled on this one.
