Issue 17’s cover

We’re really excited to share the latest issue with you. Among the many articles, we have an interview with Shannon Trust on their work teaching maths in prisons, an article on modelling penguin huddles using techniques from fluid mechanics, and how to make a Möbius strip. There will also be all the regular features you’ve come to know and love, including Dear Dirichlet (the fan favourite!), our crossnumber and more!

We will once again be hosting a party to celebrate the launch too, towards the end of the month. Our sponsors G-Research have kindly agreed to host us again, on 22 May in central London, where there will be a maths quiz, pizza and drinks. Find out more and book a free ticket for the event here. Note that bookings will close at 5.30pm on Thursday 17 May.
