Fibula Mattock BS: Isn't maths clever? (41) RE: BS: Isn't maths clever? 05 Oct 06

I was talking to someone yesterday who said she was teaching maths to a bunch of 15 year olds and none of them knew the 24hr clock or how to read a bus timetable. When she explained about the bus timetable they explained right back, and quite correctly, that in this country buses rarely, if ever, run to a timetable.

My favourite piece of maths is Suler's identity because it contains all the symbols you might want in a beautifully elegant way
(let's see if my html works):
e + 1 = 0
