No mean feat I hear you say? Well listen to this…
“2500 years ago a group of revolutionary thinkers changed the way we think about maths. Through the idea of proof, the Ancient Greeks showed that maths isn’t just about performing calculations, but a way of understanding and testing the reality of the world around us”.
