In 1978 the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures featured for the first time a talk on Mathematics. Presented by E. Christopher Zeeman and entitled "Mathematics Into Pictures", it generated such a wave of interest that a Mathematics Masterclass series was set up.

Since then there have been many regional groups running master classes. You can find out more about these from the RI website:

The format of a mathematics masterclass is usually to have 2 1/2 hours on a Saturday morning, with a break in the middle for squash and biscuits.

Several of the Mathematics Talks that Colin gives can be done in this format. The Juggling Talk is one, but others are Maths In A Twist, The Distance To The Moon, The Doodle Theorem, and the talk with the short title "NOOG", but with the longer title "NIM, Officers, and Other Games".


There were no headings
in the main text so there
is no table of contents.
