5 things to do this fortnight

  • As the weather improves and spring arrives wouldn’t it be nice to get a bit of fresh air? This professional development module might be a good place to start to help you see the environment around you with new eyes!


  • You might be aware that the exams are approaching! What does it mean to revise maths? Do all of your department share the same ideas? This professional development module might be a good place to start. 


  • Book your place for the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications conference on 23 April. The aim of the conference is to bring together people with an interest in mathematics and its applications to consider current issues in the subject. The conference topics will cover mathematics education at school and higher levels, research topics in mathematics and industrial applications of mathematics.


  • The next Women in Mathematics Day will be held on 24 April at De Morgan House, London. Sessions will include talks and posters by practising women mathematicians in a variety of appointments and at different career stages. Aimed at women mathematicians, particularly students and those at an early stage in their career, it is hoped that an opportunity to see women who are active and successful in mathematics, and to meet them informally, will be beneficial. Feedback from previous meetings has shown that participants find this useful. While this is an occasion particularly for women active in mathematics to get together, men are certainly not excluded. More details here.
  • How are you celebrating the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII’s accession on 22 April? There is a lot happening to honour the occasion, including: Henry VIII: Dressed to Kill (Tower of London, Apr 3-Jan 17 2010), an exhibition of artefacts and paintings; portraits of Henry’s Women (Hampton Court Palace, Apr 10-Aug 3), plus re-enactments of feasting and debates; and David Starkey’s Henry VIII: Man and Monarch (The British Library, Apr 23-Sept 6) which uses documents to address the changes that took place during his reign.
