A mid Year Review
Stepping into our predecessor’s mathematical shoes was no easy task. Filling a whole lunchtime with numeric beauty, made running PBΔG a tough challenge. But we were definitely up to the job. H3U on a tuesday lunchtime is still a haven for the mathematically inclined.

We’ve done some fantastic presentations on a new or familiar topic each week. Highlights include our talks on complex numbers, Riemann and knot theory. The most brilliant of these was our joint presentation celebrating international Pi day (14th March); it included pi art, pi inspired music and where pi appears in fiction! We also run a “Maths Question of the Week” for enthusiastic problem solvers.

In March, we were lucky to have ex-head boy and PBΔG Leader Jed Thorpe come back and lead a meeting with us on infinite series. Instead of a powerpoint aid, he wrote everything on a whiteboard and graphed with desmos.

At STEM Dinner this year, rather than an ordinary talk about our society, we, at PBΔG, took a non-conventional route to derive the word Stem Dinner from a seemingly unrelated equation. It was clear no one in the audience had any idea where we were going until a few steps before the end!

We’re all incredibly excited to keep up the mathematical spirit in Borlase and look forward to all the interesting questions that lay ahead.
