Maths, clearly

Hi, I’m Colin. I make maths simple.

I write books, for Dummies and others, and give talks to skeptics and school-children, professionals and prisoners, librarians and… well, anyone who’ll listen!

Formerly a researcher on NASA’s Living With A Star program, I came back to the UK in 2008 and discovered that tutoring maths was much more rewarding than researching it, or (more to the point) doing a proper job.

I wrote a blog. The For Dummies people found it. I never looked back.

When I’m not looking after my young sons, I can usually be found running around south Dorset’s excellent network of cycle paths.
