EDT Headstart: Exploring Shape and Space

Mon 28 - Thu 31 July 2014
Charles Carter Building, Lancaster University

Geometry has been a major part of mathematics since the days of the Ancient Greeks. 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.


This Summer School is part of the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) Headstart scheme and applications are administered by the EDT. The closing dates for applications to the EDT for places was 16th January 2014 and all places are now filled.
