`When we find something we enjoy doing, such as a hobby, we do not begrudge that investment of time necessary to our own advancement. Perhaps even, we rejoice in our hobby so much that the learning process itself gives happiness.’

– Original opening to Why the answer to any sum is 10

The Bees are an ambitious writing group committed to spreading the understanding and enjoyment of mathematical techniques. Their popular-audience pieces have been accepted by Cambridge University’s award-winning Plus magazine and the historic Mathematical Association’s Mathematics in School journal,  their prize-winning work has appeared in the IMA’s flagship Mathematics Today whilst their other research is published in the Applied Probability Trust’s renowned Mathematical Scientist journal.

Co-founders of The Bees, Andrew Irving and Ebrahim Patel met as fellow PhD students at the University of Manchester and they would love to hear from anyone who wants to work with them!
