Musings of a mathematical magpie If you’ve had a look through this blog before, you might have read the “about me” section at the side where I explain that I did a history degree before going on to become a maths teacher. This information mildly interests some people, worries others, and sends a select bunch into a heightened state of moral outrage. This last group – the righteously indignant - are of course the most entertaining, and I’ve learned to develop a thick skin when they air their short-sighted opinions. Upon hearing the news that I had a history degree, one man abruptly stopped the perfectly pleasant conversation we were having and started spluttering “I wouldn’t let you anywhere near children” before walking off. Another person reacted by saying that I could never be taken seriously as a professional and surely I should be teaching primary school children. So I’m taking the opportunity to answer these two questions about myself. For me, there have certainly been benefits to this approach.
