-Steve Humble (aka Dr Maths)- Dr. Maths believes that the fundamentals of mathematics can be taught via practical experiments. A recent UK government report on mathematics education described Steve as an inspiring individual; providing opportunities for children to do mathematics that they find exciting and interesting. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most children learning maths outside the classroom. -Mathematics All Around- The application and presence of Mathematics is never that far away from us as we go about our daily lives. This talk looks at some obvious and not so obvious examples of this.
