Maths is all around us — we use it every day in our mobile phones, our mp3 players and in video games. Discover the tricks of probability to help us win game shows and demonstrate how statistics can be misleading. Can computers use mathematics to read your mind? Explore binary code with the help of rockets and the power of the number 9. Examine surfaces and connections in topology. Investigate why Houdini was a great topologist as well as an escape artist as you experiment with being tied up!
