It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Douglas Buchanan last month (May 2024) after a short illness bravely borne.

Douglas had been coming to Maths Week Ireland since 2012 and contributed 93 “Maths beyond the Textbooks” pieces to this newsletter. The wisdom of a lifetime of teaching was evident in his writing;  containing useful advice, sharing interesting ideas and posing perplexing puzzles.
