Mathematics suggested by a logo: Both rich and beautiful?

Martin Griffiths

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We consider here the plethoraofmathematical ideas arising fromsomething as apparently banal as an association logo. This example is used to illustrate the fact that a potentially rich task may also have the capacity to appeal, in a powerful way, to learners' aesthetic sensibilities. It is to be hoped that both teachers and lecturers will find some of the mathematical, and even the more philosophical, notions presented here to be of interest, and that these ideas might serve as catalysts with respect to the development of activities for the classroom or the lecture theatre. © The Author 2010.
