Maths: it’s all Greek to me!
You’ve probably heard of Pythagoras, Archimedes and Plato, but do you know the sins behind their stories? From murder and deceit to running naked down the street, the Ancient Greek mathematicians were anything but boring. I’ll be telling you all about their mischief – mathematical or otherwise – as I bring the history of maths to life (featuring live experiments and togas).

Dr Tom Crawford, aka the Naked Mathematician, is a maths tutor at three colleges at the University of Oxford with a passion for maths communication.
