Presented by the Mathematical Association of NSW Inc (MANSW)

Inspiring maths lecture shows for 15-17 year olds.

Inspire your students to study STEM subjects to HSC and beyond!

This year our performers are Jen Rogers, Matt Parker and Rob Eastaway.

Jen Rogers studied Mathematics with Statistics at Lancaster University before going to the University of Warwick to do her PhD. She is now research fellow in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. She has appeared as an expert statistician in the TV programmes Long Live Britain and Mystery Map – in which she calculated the chance of dying from spontaneous human combustion!

Matt Parker is known as the “stand-up mathematician” and is the only person to hold the prestigious title of London Mathematical Society Popular Lecturer while simultaneously having a sold-out comedy show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Matt is always keen to mix his two passions of mathematics and stand-up as well as presenting TV and radio shows. In 2014 his first book, Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension, was published in the UK and USA.

Rob Eastaway is an author whose books on everyday maths include the bestselling Why Do Buses Come In Threes? and The Hidden Maths of Sport. He was once a mathematical puzzle setter for New Scientist magazine. He’s an avid cricket player and fan, and was helped devise the international rankings of cricketers. He appears regularly on the BBC national radio to talk about the maths of everyday life and has given maths talks across the world to audiences of all ages.
