Another meeting and another new face at the meeting! It is always great to meet new people. We introduced our new member to what happens at a MathJam by playing a few rounds of SET and solving some problems. We dug into some problems that @stecks shared with us, and we did our best to find those elegant solutions that we knew would be hiding within.
After discussing some number theory and number tricks for multiplication, we tweeted out one of our favourite problems…the train and the bridge. @icecolbeveridge,was one of the first to reply via @mathsjam, and he liked the problem so much he and @reflectivemaths featured it in their most recent episode of Wrong, But Useful podcast. These podcasts are great fun and are well worth the listen!
A wonderful mathsy evening, indeed!
