For those of you who are parents, you will empathise with my struggle of keeping up with children's homework and, if like me, you will also be aware of how much more difficult their studies seem to have become in comparison to 'our day'.

And none more so than maths. Recently, my 11 year old came back with an exercise in trigonometry that found me resorting to Google to remind me of what was simple in my day, but had been long since forgotten.

This sorry tale, however, started a train of thought whilst reading through the complexities of trigonometry and I realised that there were certain parallels (oh please!) linking simple maths to posing ... and I kid you not!

After many years of studying posing and having worked out for myself(mainly by trial and error) what looks good and what does not, I decidedto apply some mathematical theory to the subject of posing to see if Icould establish a link, however tenuous, to see if there was any foundationlinking maths and art. To my surprise, without going into too mucharithmetical mumbo-jumbo, I found that there was some cross-relationfrom the subjects of angles and trigonometry that I hope you enjoy -albeit from a distance.
