LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR - Playing games like a mathematician

Sunday 17 March: 2:30pm - 3:30pm

Babbage Lecture Theatre, New Museums Site Downing Street, CB2 3RS

Games are a fun pastime - but underlying them is often some mathematics, which you can use to make better decisions when playing. Join mathematician Katie Steckles to find out how thinking like a mathematician, looking for patterns and mathematical abstraction can improve your gameplay.

Katie Steckles is a mathematician based in Manchester, who gives talks and workshops on different areas of maths. She finished her PhD in 2011, and since then has talked about maths in schools, at science festivals, on BBC radio, at music festivals, as part of theatre shows and on the internet. She enjoys doing puzzles, solving the Rubik's cube and baking things shaped like maths.
