Where should you move first in Connect 4? What is the best property in Monopoly?
How can pi help you win rock paper scissors? For as long as there have been
people, there have been games, and for nearly as long, we have been exploring and
discovering mathematics. The highly-engaging and award-winning mathematician
returns to Budleigh to explore the maths behind the games we love and why we love
to play them. Spanning millennia, oceans and continents, countries and cultures,
he’ll explain how games provided the first opportunities for deep mathematical
insight into the world, how understanding maths can help us play games better,
and how both maths and games are integral to human psychology and culture. ​A grand adventure!
