Maths Week: Sum Stories

It’s Maths Week 2013! Maths was my favourite subject in school so I couldn’t let the week go by without some sort of celebration.

To share some numerical joy, I tweeted earlier asking you to tell some tweet-sized maths stories. These include your favourite sums, equations and experiences etc with maths. I’ll keep adding to this post throughout #mathsweek! To take part, simply tweet your maths story and throw in my Twitter handle somewhere so I see it (@mhdelaney).

Thanks to everyone for their stories!
