Matt Parker and his binary scarf
We went to see a stand-up show by Matt Parker 'Stand-up Maths' - where he combined the art of stand-up with mathematics in an interesting way.
Matt is a university teacher i mathematics education, originally Australian, but living now in the UK.
His mother had knitted him this scarf as a Christmas present; its pattern is made out of binary symbols, those famous 1s and 0s. You can decipher the pattern, it is a message, something that Matt had said about maths. Interesting - but so far away from my life experience, unfortunately...
The show was really good, ad as you can see, Matt was oly too happy to pose for camera after it. Look for more at : www.standupmaths.com
