Making a Mathematical Exhibition
Abstract:We explain how we came to be involved in making a mathematical exhibition; some mistakes we made; and the philosophy we evolved on the principles which underlay our presentation.
The main conclusion is that the exhibition should tell a story and aim to give an impression of the character of mathematics.
