Sexy maths online

Professor Marcus du Sautoy från Oxford university i England som besökte Sverige tidigare i år medverkar regelbundet i en populärvetenskaplig artikelserie "Sexy maths" i TIMESONLINE. Serien startade i oktober 2008 med en artikel om Primtal - Primes of passion. Den senaste artikeln handlar om perfekta tal. Många lärare i England använder regelbundet artiklarna i sin matematikundervisning. Kanske också något för samverkan matematik - engelska för svenska elever?
