This is a great way to get students enjoying their maths while they find out about tricks to play on their friends! Tricks can be understood and worked on at more than one level, so they will be enjoyed by younger children, but older children could profitably work on them as well.

Rob divides his time between writing books, running workshops and giving lecture. He read Engineering at Cambridge University and then went to work in business before he became a freelancer. His best known book is called "Why do buses come in threes?" about the hidden maths in everyday life, which he wrote with Jeremy Wyndham.
