Greenwich Maths Centre

The Greenwich Maths Centre is a new centre at the University of Greenwich, within the Faculty of Architecture, Computing & Humanities.  It was launched with a special lecture by Professor Dame Celia Hoyles on "Potential, policy and challenges for mathematics" on 10 March 2015. The purpose of the centre is to promote mathematics at all levels: to demonstrate the value of mathematics as a tool for business and industry, as an instrument for understanding our world, and as a fascinating pursuit in its own right.  

If you have any questions about the Greenwich Maths Centre, please contact the Director of the Maths Centre, Tony Mann, a.mann@gre.ac.uk
