What if at school you had to take an art class in which you were only taught how to paint a fence? What if you were never shown the paintings of Leonardo and Picasso?
Would that make you appreciate art? Would you want to learn more about it?
                                    Mathematics is just like art
                                   -  E. Frenkel

  So often in the world of mathematics we remain confined to the perspective given by high-school mathematics, as if being trapped in an uneventful little village; only few overcome appearances and start to wander into the wilderness, marvelling at how this limitless and unchartable world towers upon them.


This project was born with the idea of guiding a few curious villagers through this sublime world; the villagers may be children or adults, the starting point be a bland exercise or a cool math video, whatever the case the lessons will try to craft trails through this abstract cosmos, departing from the village, going from the ethereal and lush forests of number theory to the smooth shape-shifting hills of calculus, and everything in between.

About me

I'm Lorenzo, I arrived in London in 2018 to study Mathematics at Imperial College, my intent being to then follow theoretical physics, for which mathematical ability is crucial. I hence completed my BSc in Mathematics in 2021 and enrolled in an MSc in Theoretical Physics from which I graduated this year. Little did I know that in the three years studying mathematics I would have fallen in love with this discipline and now miss it greatly. 

After much experience tutoring undergraduates I am now pursuing a Master of Education at the Royal College of Art, trying to shed light on the fact that mathematics and the natural sciences are not meant to be dull subjects, but possess their own aesthetic appeal, which can be brought out with an adequate  pedagogy. The goal of this project is to bring this vision to life.
