Stories of maths

The Bullingdon, Cowley Road, Oxford OX4 1UE

A duel to the death to resolve a love triangle; a heretic murdered at sea; and a secret formula that made millions – no matter your opinion of maths as a subject, the stories of the mathematicians behind it are anything but dull. Join Dr Tom Crawford (aka Tom Rocks Maths) for an entertaining evening of story-telling and attempted comedy, as he presents maths, but not as you know it.

Dr Tom Crawford is a mathematician at the University of Oxford and the face of the award-winning Tom Rocks Maths which aims to make maths exciting, engaging and entertaining for all. Whether he’s performing live as the Naked Mathematician with Equations Stripped, telling you about his favourite maths topics on Numberphile, or getting another maths tattoo (12 and counting), it’s safe to say Tom is always finding new ways to misbehave with numbers.
