Event description

Description

Come and join Australia’s favourite mathematician for a day of puzzle solving, mathematics and all round fun! Adam Spencer will educate and entertain Year 9-10 students for 90 minutes at The University of Newcastle's Great Hall as they tackle some of the most exciting maths and number puzzles from his latest best-seller Adam Spencer’s Top 100. As an added bonus, included in the excursion fee of $25 per person, every student will get a signed copy of Adam's book and he is happy to personalise the signature and pose for selfies.

Many of the puzzles in Top 100 were designed by Adam and a colleague especially for the book. Attendees will never have seen these puzzles before!

A great chance for your students to, as Adam puts it, 'get their geek on' and discover the joy of serious problem solving with one of the world’s best maths communicators.
