Maths Madness

With Kyle Evans

This is an event from the 2019 edition

Sponsored by

A show with stacks of audience participation and some mind-bending mathematical concepts, all delivered in an accessible fashion for children and their parents.

This hour-long performance includes some of Kyle’s favourite demos that he has developed in recent years, including: T-shirts of hanoi, a fibonacci based folk song, the paper folding world championships, and an attempt to fit all of the UK’s rice stocks onto a single chess board (this part usually fails, but he gives it a good go). Whether you’re a mathsphile or a mathsphobe, this show brings joyous number-play and family entertainment together in a way that truly has something for everyone.

Kyle is an award winning maths communicator (Famelab UK 2016) and musical comedian (Best Stand-up, Swindon Fringe 2018) with a passion for increasing the general public’s understanding and enjoyment of mathematics. He has performed musical/comedy maths shows for all ages at various events, such as Cheltenham & Manchester Science festivals, Blue Dot, Green Man, Camp Bestival, London Science Museum, Edinburgh Fringe and various other festivals. He regularly delivers talks to large crowds of teenagers at events such as Maths Inspiration and Maths in Action, and is an occasional contributor to Radio 4’s flagship numbers show ‘More or Less’.
