The Numbers in Our Daily lives

What is this talk/activity about?

Numbers are everywhere, and we have the power to understand where they come from and what we can learn from them.

We are surrounded by numbers, some obvious and in plain sight, other less obvious or hidden. One example from antiquity is the golden ratio, beloved of architects and mathematicians, among others. In this talk, I'll highlight some of my favourite numbers (including the golden ratio) and explain the role they play in the world around us.
