Crafty Maths

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:35 pm on 7 July 2021

For some it’s the scary subject at school but more New Zealanders are rediscovering maths, thanks to a crafty approach by local mathematicians.

Maths Craft uses creative skills such as knitting, crochet and origami to demonstrate the mathematical patterns and concepts that are all around us.
