Rob Eastaway: Playing for Real – Games and Money
March 13 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
Rob Eastaway is Director of Maths Inspiration a national programme of interactive maths lecture shows for teenagers. He is an author whose books on everyday maths include the bestselling ‘Why Do Buses Come In Threes?’ and The Hidden Maths of Sport. He appears regularly on BBC Radio 4

There will be a chance to win prizes including (maybe) some money
