This year’s Middlesex University Mathematics Christmas Lecture on Adventures in the Fourth Dimension will be given by Zoe Griffiths from Maths Inspiration and StandupMaths.

Adventures in the Fourth Dimension

Living in a three dimensional world means we are familiar with the mathematical shapes and patterns that exist there. In this year’s Mathematics Christmas Lecture prepare to be amazed as we take a glimpse into the fourth dimension. We will explore it by visualising the mind-bending shapes that exist in the fourth dimension. The lecture will be accessible and the audience will be encouraged to apply their mathematical thinking skills to higher dimensions.

Topics: mobius loops, Klein bottle & 4D surfaces, hypercubes, 4D Rubik's cube.

About the speaker, Zoe Griffiths

After graduating from Durham University Zoe trained as a secondary maths teacher with the University of Oxford.

Zoe then worked as a classroom teacher for four years before taking up a position at the Royal Institution where she created and delivered mathematics workshops for young people.

Zoe joined Think Maths in April 2017 and her work in maths communication has seen her give talks and deliver workshops for students, families and teachers: in schools both in the UK and internationally, in the Royal Institution world-famous lecture theatre, at science festivals, university and FMSP events and teacher conferences. Zoe's favourite number is i and she has been known to bake mathematical cakes.
