The maths behind our everyday lives around transport.

Simple maths can reveal how energy efficient different forms of transport are. We will look at how to drive as fuel efficiently as possible. When does buying a small car help? Does car-pooling always save energy? Simple estimates can also tell us about the relative efficiencies of travelling by road, rail or air - and even by bike.
