Fun?

7 August, 2007

This recent story raises some interesting issues. For a start, why aren’t there similar stories in the English press? (can’t speak for Scotland, Wales or NI)

More pertinently: while it’s always good to see an article emphasizing that

math is more than numbers on a page

it makes me a bit uneasy that competition in mathematics is being elided with appreciation of mathematics. More on this in future posts, hopefully.
