Marcus du Sautoy Around the World in 80 Games

Friday 3 May 2024

Crowne Plaza Hotel

Where should you move first in Connect 4? What is the best property in Monopoly? How can pi help you win rock paper scissors? For as long as there have been people, there have been games, and for nearly as long, we have been exploring and discovering mathematics. The highly-engaging and award-winning mathematician explores the maths behind the games we love and why we love to play them, and how games provided the first opportunities for deep mathematical insight into the world, how understanding maths can help us play games better, and how both maths and games are integral to human psychology and culture. A grand adventure!
