Sharing Some Birthday Pi w/ David Butler

Posted on: Tue 11 Jul 2017

From flying over seas to sharing dank memes, maths is the quiet hero behind much of modern life, despite this many groan when they’re faced with maths problems.

“I have a feeling actually everyone has a little maths curiosity hardwired but you can have it beaten out of you or encouraged as you go along” -Dr. David Butler joined Jennie Lenman in studio to chat about all things maths. The University of Adelaide’s Maths Learning Centre is celebrating 25 years and Dr. Butler is hoping to help change attitudes with his project My Piece of Pi.
