Day: May 3, 2012

What’s the point of maths? To help you to win bets in the pub of course. The best bets are ones where your opponent thinks the odds are in his favour. Author and Broadcaster Rob Eastaway will be showing his favourite examples, ranging from the newspaper bet to ‘special’ poker where you choose the cards, and giving the audience a chance to win some money off him.

Rob Eastaway is best known for his bestselling books “Why do buses come in threes?” and “Maths for Mums & Dads”. He is Director of Maths Inspiration, a national programme of theatre-based lectures for teenagers, and is regularly to be heard on national radio talking about the maths of everyday life. He has given talks to just about every type of audience, ranging from the Edinburgh Fringe to the inmates of Pentonville Prison – and one thing that connects those audiences is that they all fancy a good bet.
