EASIER THAN YOU THINK...

Biographies

The history of our world has been greatly influenced by its mathematicians.  They have developed the code and strategies and understanding that has allowed trade, agriculture, industry, management, engineering and science to develop.  In this part of my website, I would like to draw your attention to some amazing men and women from all periods who can inspire and intrigue you.  They are presented in no particular order.

By far the best educator I have been subject to in my schooling life. Apart from showing me with the utmost clarity the many concepts of mathematics, Graeme has inspired me to better myself in everything that I do in school and in my life. His dedication to his craft is truly admirable, and this level of dedication to helping the student achieve is something that is extremely hard to find. If you’d want anyone on your side during HSC mathematics, it’d be Graeme.
