Outreach Kits

Within the School of Mathematics we are currently holding a number of practical demonstration kits, developed by the Institute of Mathematics and its Application (IMA) which are available to borrow. We have 7 kits available each helping to promote an area of mathematics in a hands-on, practical way which would be great for in-class demonstrations and for use at fairs.

Galton Board: A Practical Demonstration of Probability

Soap Bubble Wires: The Energy of Bubble Films

Double Pendulum: The mathematics of chaos

The Penrose Tiles
These two shapes have a remarkable property. They can tile a plane but not periodically. In other words the tiling of the plane they produce is not made of a single patch of tiles repeated.
