Math Students Study Abroad in London, July 16 – August 6, 2019

If it’s Tuesday this must be London. The class in Math History taught by Dr. Eileen Faulkenberry and Dr. Kathy Smith visited numerous museums and points of interest in London and the United Kingdom. These included the Tower of London, St. Paul’s, the London Eye, Westminster Abby, the British Science Museum, and Hampton Court. There were side trips to Bletchley Park (codebreakers in World War II worked here), Paris, Greenwich (want to stand at 0 degrees longitude?), Oxford, Cambridge, Stonehenge, Bath (a Roman era city), Edinburgh, and Loch Ness (extra points for spotting Nessie).
