House of Maths Presents: Cunning Maths


Why are clocks weird? Why were the Romans rubbish at maths? And what shapes are best to juggle with? Join House Of Maths to find out the answers in a fun-packed show that’s cunning, clever and crazy. Watch out at the front: you may get a little bit wet!


This session is designed for children aged 7-9 - although anyone with curiousity is very welcome. 


Barney Maunder-Taylor is unique amongst Maths Workshops presenters: he has a double first in maths from Oxford University, is a former Champion of Countdown (series 62), is a previous winner of Bournemouth & Poole Children’s Entertainer Of The Year (Dorset), and still holds the title of Jester of Bournemouth. A former cabaret juggler, Barney now divides his time equally between tutoring maths to University level in Dorset, and presenting maths shows & assemblies and maths workshops in Primary and Lower Secondary schools throughout Dorset, Hampshire and the South. As a teacher of maths Barney is clear, dynamic, innovative and entertaining; as a maths demonstrator and schools visitor Barney delights in sharing his passion, tricks and insights into the hidden maths of our everyday lives.
