Maths Café is your chance to look at some fun maths topics and their applications. You will think, discuss, argue, and experiment. We will look at river crossing problems, ways to send secret messages and why your newspaper is full of dodgy statistics. We will look at voting systems, how to write a computer programme and why logicians like wearing coloured hats. We will look at platonic solids, how to cover a chess board with tiles, why there are only 17 types of wallpaper and much more.
This course is not like school maths. There will be no fractions, percentages, algebra or trigonometry. This course will not help you pass the GCSE. This course is fun! You do not need to know any maths to take this course.
