Canan Altaş, who follows us on Facebook, has sent us this great picture of many Maths Daves hunting for shapes in her school in Turkey. How many geometric shapes can you find in this picture?
Maths Dave accompanied students and staff from Walthamstow School for Girls on a ski trip to Switzerland. Here he is having just wiped out on a red run.
We think that Maths Dave needs to spend a bit more time revising Velocity (V) = Displacement (S) / Time (T).
I wonder what maths dave's family looks like?
Our class of thirty people made a maths dave or daphne and we had a whole family of them my maths teacher is great!
I think she is ace too! Your teacher sent me the picture and it's now got pride of place in our office. This is a picture of me when I received the photo:
Not sure, but I bet they're deeply interested in public transport systems ;-). If you decide to create the Maths Dave family and have trouble posting it to this forum, just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post it for you. In the meantime, here is a photo of two Maths Daves, taken a week before the launch of our competition:
They weren't allowed out until they finished building the site.
Lovingly created by a maths class in Walthamstow School for Girls.
What a shame that the original idea was only for a male mathematician!
(btw Simon's Cat had this idea of cut out figures first!)
We went for Maths Dave because there are two guys called Dave on the project. Then the lovely Walthamstow School for Girls redressed the balance with a whole collection of Maths Daphnes and Maths Davinas. Check out this picture:
Dave admires the view from the bridge
I thought I would let you know I noticed Maths Dave's shadow as I'm sure you spent a lot of time making it ;-)
I'll have you know I printed out a life size version and took him to London for the day. The picture 100% authentic.
*ahem* thank for noticing the shadow *ahem*
How do the sun glasses stay on if he has no ears or nose?
Geordie Dave has been brushing up on his Euclid before going to look for maths in Newcastle:
Now that the competition's over, Geordie Dave has been put out to pasture:
It took me a while but I see what you've done here ;-)
And here's one my mate Mark made earlier. One can only assume that he's still waiting for his turn with the safety scissors ;-)
