Teaching

I  teach at CityLit and Central Saint Martins.

At CityLit, I  teach courses in philosophy and the history of mathematics in collaboration with Rich Cochrane  – including courses in Time and Philosophy of Mathematics.

The courses below at are available to the general public:

At CSM, I co-founded and co-run the Fine Art Maths Centre. This is the first centre of its kind in the UK and was previously funded as a Sigma maths support centre. If offers workshop and tutorial support to artists who would like help to advance their practice or make specific works.

Our initial provision focused on geometry – Euclidean, Projective & Perspective and Topology & non-Euclidean – but we expanded to include introductions to coding and computing, which have proven to very popular. In Autumn 2017, we ran an ambitious programme entitled ‘Three Pillars of the Digital’, which provided a series of workshops on coding, connectedness and data. 70 students participated.

We have authored one self-study textbook based on our Euclidean Geometry course. It is freely available and comes with supporting resources in Geogebra.

In collaboration with The Photographers’ Gallery, we will be offering a version of our introductory progamming course on Monday evenings from 30 October 2017. ‘Coding for Beginners’ teaches Processing from scratch. Processing  is a variant of Java tweaked for visual practice.
