In which @icecolbeveridge - Weymouth maths tutor Colin Beveridge in real life - and @reflectivemaths - Cheddar-based teacher Dave Gale - discuss the interesting maths tidbits they've come across in the last few weeks. There's always time for puzzles and - of course - plenty they don't understand.

Customer Reviews


Unassuming, gentle and informative chat on mathematics whether it is in the news or just plain interesting tidbits. A pleasure to listen to.

All the stars

If you enjoy doing maths, hearing discussions about maths, or just listening to intelligent conversation, then this is a podcast for you. Be it your first maths-related foray or an addition to a line of 'other' podcasts you’re subscribed to, this is well worth your time.
Covering a wide variety of topics - governed by whatever has crossed the 2 hosts' minds in the past month. And if ~1 hour isn’t enough, then at the end there's some homework to take away and work on before next time :)
Wrong, but Useful – one of my favourite podcasts, always jumping to the top of my must-listen-to pile.


I can’t improve on the previous reviews here. Colin and Dave provide lovely and interesting listening. Serious maths presented without off-putting seriousness. Hilarity delivered in deadpan … except for when one breaks down in a giggle (I could listen for those moments alone). Mathematics presented by mathematicians incredibly accessibly; intermixed with stories from their own lives. “They’re just these guys, you know?"
