In December 2008 I started a new blog on
Explaining mathematics (How
to explain mathematical concepts in a way that students can
understand). As well as discussion of my recent experiences, ideas, and
teaching methodology, my blog includes links to a number of my teaching
resources, and, in particular, to videos of many of my classes.
My current teaching timetable is available online here.
I am a former British champion of the boardgame Othello®. (I won the title six times between 1989 and 1997.)
Back in 1993 I wrote a program to solve the 6x6 version of Othello. I wrote this up as a fictional report, Amenor wins world 6x6 Championships! in the 1993 newsletter of the British Othello Federation. You can find the relevant issue (FORTY BILLION NODES UNDER THE TREE, JULY 1993) on the page http://www.britishothello.org.uk/newsletters.html
Here is a poster with some information about Othello: click on the image to see the full size version!
