This residential summer school will explore some of the different questions arising from geometrical problems from 2000 years ago to the present day. Participants will meet concepts from university-level mathematics and experience what it is like to study mathematics though formulating problems precisely, looking at examples, generalising and applying logical argument and proof.http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fas/maths/events/?event_id=1204
