This is a valuable resource of non-syllabus material for mathematics in school education and science teachers at secondary school level, teenagers and parents. It contains written versions of Royal Institution masterclasses on a wide selection of topics in pure and applied mathematics, and very little knowledge is assumed. Topics include chaos theory, meteorology, storage limitations of computers, population growth and decay, and the mechanics of dinosaurs. This book shows that mathematics can be fun!
