Quotable maths: Rudin

“I draw little pictures and try this thing and that thing. I’m interested in how ideas fit together. Actually I’m very geometric in my thinking. I’m not really interested in numbers.”
– Mary Ellen Rudin (1924-2013), who died this week.

Where do you teach?

I teach in my home in Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.

It's a 15-minute walk from Weymouth station, and it's on bus routes 3, 8 and X53. On-road parking is available nearby.
