This book serves as a valuable resource for mathematics and science teachers at secondary school level, teenagers and parents. It contains written versions of Royal Institution masterclasses on a wide selection of topics in pure and applied mathematics. The masterclasses are a popular program of advanced study conducted each year for mathematically talented university-bound British youth. They serve as a unique introduction to the kinds of topics found at the undergraduate level, yet presented in a manner that is meant to stimulate interest and challenge young minds.
