About this event

Rob Ainsley shows you tricks and tips to make people think you know more about maths than they do. And than you do.

Find out how to multiply anything without multiplying; how to make averages lie in your favour; how to chop up one orange into two, each as big the original; how some infinities are bigger than others; and how to cope with overbooking at an infinitely big hotel. Plus discover what actually happened when they gave a bunch of monkeys some typewriters.

Join us for a lively and humorous journey into mathematics. Trigger warning: contains Venn diagrams.
