Mathematical headaches? Problem solved!
Hi, I'm Colin, and I'm here to help you make sense of maths
Written by Colin+ in silly questions amnesty.
It's not only Burns' Night, but it's also Impala The Koala's birthday!
You can celebrate either or both of these by asking a question in the comments - I'll answer as nicely as I can!
Colin is a Weymouth maths tutor, author of several Maths For Dummies books and A-level maths guides. He started Flying Colours Maths in 2008.
He lives with an espresso pot and nothing to prove.

[English: Since it’s Burns’ Night, what would those well known physics formulas and constants look like if we were to express them in old Scots Measures?]
Sounds like a great idea for a guest post! (Might be a few weeks before I can get to it, otherwise.)

[English: Yes, you may be right there! I’ll see what I can do with the numbers.]

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.
