A talk by Andrew Jeffrey – the Mathemagician.

The Rosetta Stone changed our understanding of Ancient Egypt completely. But what could it possibly have to do with maths, and specifically how children learn it? Come along and find out! During this talk, Andrew will explain his thinking behind what works, and why. He will also play noughts and crosses, show you an impossible card trick, and even attempt to predict the evening's Lottery Results!
