The Fantastic Four (by @happynikitakk)

Posted on Updated on

Today we looked at maths from a different perspective. A perspective which I didn’t even know existed- maths in maps. We learnt that there is no possible map which cannot be coloured with four colours or less, without any adjacent areas on the map being the same colour. This ‘Four Colour Theorem’ took over 100 years to prove. The concept itself is quite difficult getting your head around. In fact our whole class spent most of the lesson trying to disprove it, with no success. Who knew a mathematician could have such a fascination with mapping?
