Step 2 – Hunt for ideas
Start hunting for maths in your city! See our How to find maths in your city page for examples of what we are looking for.
The maths doesn’t have to be difficult. The role that familiar shapes such as triangles, squares and hexagons have in our buildings can be an exciting a story. And there is no shortage of places to uncover mathematical stories. Whether it is a common feature of every city, or something special to a particular building, you can find maths hiding almost everywhere you look.
