The School of Mathematical Sciences is contributing: our event this year is called Othello at the Casino. See http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/wonder/activities/othello-at-the-casino.aspx for a description of our activities. From there I quote:
Othello at the casino11:00 AM – 5:00 PMTry your luck at the roulette table (no real money involved!), and learn aspects of the strategy for the board game Othello. You can also take part in games and puzzles and develop your problem-solving skills.Drop in anytimeZone 2 – Engineering and Science Learning Centre, B01Suitable for 7+
We will have staff and students there to chat to visitors, and we will have all sorts of things on display, including Rubik’s Cubes, Towers of Hanoi, Gyroscopes (and their variants), and other exhibits, games and puzzles. We will also have a roulette wheel running , and I’ll be giving tips on how to win at Othello.
Our aim is to show that, as well as being incredibly important and interesting in lots of different ways, maths is FUN!
So, while chatting to us, you can develop your problem-solving skills and refresh those parts of the brain that other activities cannot reach!
