Making it all add up

Maths wiz, author and TV presenter Kjartan Poskitt recently paid a visit to a Cheshire girls’ school

Do you know your 1,089 times table? Did you know you can cut a cube of cheese into 93 pieces with eight straight cuts? Or that there are 12,988,816 different ways to cover a chess board with 32 dominoes? The girls in key stage two at The Queen’s School now do.

The girls, aged 7-11, were recently entertained by the author of ‘Murderous Maths’ and the Agatha Parrot books, Kjartan Poskitt, who spent the day at the lower school. Kjartan told the girls how he became an author instead of a rock star and shared with them some of the ‘Magic Maths’ trickery from his latest book. Highlights included nets of cubes which formed themselves and magic squares which work in 24 directions.
