Maths: it’s all Greek to me! You’ve probably heard of Pythagoras, Archimedes and Plato, but do you know the sins behind their stories? From murder and deceit to running naked down the street, the Ancient Greek mathematicians were anything but boring. I’ll be telling you all about their mischief – mathematical or otherwise – as I bring the history of maths to life (featuring live experiments and togas).

Dr Tom Crawford is a maths tutor at the University of Oxford with a mission to share his love of maths with the world. His award-winning website http://www.tomrocksmaths.com/ features videos, podcasts, articles and puzzles designed to make maths more entertaining, exciting and enthralling for all.
