Magical maths

4th February 2005 at 00:00
As a member of two magical associations I use my knowledge of conjuring and linguistic deception to bring maths to life and make it fun for pupils. I don't reveal the secrets of my magical arts, instead I develop new effects linked to maths in the national curriculum. I'm putting together a book and any readers interested in magical maths are welcome to contact me.
