A World History of Mathematics, Mathematical Institute, Oxford, November 2020

A series of posters whose aim is to provide a taste of the different types of mathematics that have appeared throughout the world, and to show that these are as much a part of the story of mathematics as the tales that are traditionally told of the prominent European mathematicians.

Ada Lovelace's Mathematical Papers, digitised and hosted by the Clay Mathematics Institute, 2016

Images, together with transcriptions and notes, of the mathematical papers of Ada Lovelace, the bulk of which comprise the correspondence course that Lovelace took with Augustus De Morgan in 1840–1.  The papers demonstrate Lovelace’s progress as a mathematical learner, as she moved beyond the basic geometry that had hitherto formed the bulk of her knowledge, and got to grips with more advanced topics, principally the calculus.
