Tom Rocks Maths S02 E03

Season 2 of Tom Rocks Maths on Oxide Radio continues with maths and rock aplenty as we delve into the quantum realm to uncover the third Millennium Problem worth a cool $1 million… Plus the usual puzzle, fun facts about numbers you didn’t realise you’ve secretly always wanted to know, and brilliant music from Blink 182, My Chemical Romance and Asking Alexandria. This is maths, but not as you know it.

Funbers 12

12 days of Christmas, 12 inches in a foot, 12 disciples of Jesus, 12 pennies in a shilling, 12 months of the year… it’s fair to say we do like the number 12.

You can listen to all of the Funbers episodes from the ongoing series with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and BBC Radio Oxford here.
