Using maths to wrap Christmas presents

leslieNews

Maths is a wonderful thing. One of few things that are the same in any language and now you can use it in your gift giving too.

You may have seen Katie Steckles give her talk at the Peterborough STEM Festival back in October, or maybe you helped her create a Mirror Pillar drawing?

Well here, Stecks shows you how to wrap a multitude of geometrical shapes and squishy things using mathematical equations.

That tube of sweets you’ve bought for the kids stockings? Who knew you could use Pi to wrap that?
Get the most out of your wrapping paper this year by just using exactly what you need and stop your gifts from looking like they were wrapped by a 2 year old.

We’d love to see your efforts, so please do share them with us on social media!
