Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to the SHEAF Blog.

Despite our best intentions, we're not great at keeping this blog updated with our latest happenings. We are, however, definitely an active group, meeting at least once each week during term time.

If you'd like to make contact with Dunedin home educators, our contact details are in the column, below right.

We send out a weekly email newsletter with details of upcoming events, courses, gatherings etc.

You can also find us on Facebook (page is visible whether you're a facebook user or not)

Have a look through this blog to see the types of events we have organised in the past. You'll also find links to other blogs and articles that we find useful or informative, on the off-chance that you'll appreciate them too :~) (Look for these more general blog-posts under the label "Weekend Reading")

If you're not currently on our email list and would like to contact us, please email us at the address you can see in the column on the right. We'd love to hear from you!

Weekend Watching

This documentary is great! Comedian Alan Davies embarks on a maths odyssey with the help of mathematician Marcus du Sautoy. As Prof du Sautoy says, sums and equations are like the grammar of maths, so let's forget about that and take a look at the high drama, the Shakespeare of maths...

The link above is to part 1 of 6, so the whole thing is an hour-long doco, but well worth the watch. I recommend double clicking the link and watching it directly at YouTube, rather than as a little embedded picture - and for part 2 etc, have a look for "Horizon: Alan and Marcus Go Forth and Multiply - 2/6".
