Rita ShannonHi Terry, I am posting under this article primarily because I am a beekeeper. My question might seem very simplistic but it puzzles me. Could you explain to me in very simple terms how maths provides answers to ‘big’ questions? For example your water machine? I live part of the beside the sea and when it is particuarly stormy it creates spume. Perhaps this is more easy to harness than water? It retains its shape. Thanks Rita
