Most of the time, the maths in our everyday lives works quietly behind the scenes, until someone forgets to carry a ‘1’ and a bridge collapses or a plane drops out of the sky. Join Matt Parker to explore the bizarre ways maths can trip us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world.
This event is particularly suitable for children aged 12+.
