MATHS JOKES – RHYD LEWIS

 

So, I agreed to give a talk at the Hay Festival about Mathematics. I have to admit that when I agreed to this, I was a little worried. What if no one came? What if no one understood? Or worse still, what if no one cared?

As it turned out, the event was a sell out and had to be moved to a bigger stage. I’ve found out that Hay is a great place to communicate science to the public.

Unlike my students, they even laughed at some of my jokes…
