Maths event adds up to a magic time
Maths is rarely near the top of the list when it comes to pupils' favourite school subjects.
However, staff and students at the University of Leicester showed how to make the subject fun at an event held as part of National Science and Engineering Week.
The Magic of Maths gave visitors an insight into "the strange world of geometry", thanks to the teachings of Dr José L Rodríguez, of the University of Almeria, in Spain, and Dr Frank Neumann, from the University of Leicester's department of mathematics, as well as a number of students.
Dr Neumann said: "This interactive drop-in demonstration shows the beauty and wonders of mathematics and the strange world of geometry which surrounds us.

"Participants could interact with maths in ways that they may never have thought possible and see how maths is present all around us during our normal daily lives."
This year's National Science and Engineering Week runs until Sunday.
The university will be holding an array of interactive activities across a number of different subject areas and covering all age groups, from primary school through to public lectures for all ages.
