Primary School Children
Primary school children love magic, and many tricks are based on maths. In this lively show, with plenty of audience participation, Rob demonstrates a number of his favourite maths-based tricks. These include tricks with calculators, magic squares and cards. The tricks are great material for investigations in later maths lessons some teacher notes are provided with the talk, and the shows are ideal for groups with a wide range of abilities. Children leave highly enthused and keen to try things out.
For older children, Rob combines mind-reading tricks with puzzles and mathematical mysteries. He also challenges the audience to beat him at a game... in which they invariably succeed after several failed attempts and a few clues.
"Thank you for a great day on Monday. The children loved the workshops, as did the staff and the parents. It was a great way to launch our maths week." St William Primary, London SE23
