★ About Marcus du Sautoy’s Num8er My5teries ★

Want to know how to use math to 'read your friends’ minds'? Or how math can help you always win at chocolate chilli roulette? Want to know who invented Sudoku or where is the best place to bet in a casino? Or just how to win at rock, paper, scissors?

Based on Marcus du Sautoy’s new book, The Num8er My5teries, this app focuses on the game strategy chapter, and how math can help you win. Jam-packed full of educational, entertaining information, the app contains three videos and four extracts of Marcus’ writing. It also includes a fun game, ‘Moley’, based on the famous ‘impossible’ math problem, ‘The Bridges of Königsberg.’

Race against the clock to help Marcus the Mole escape from his underground tunnels, using all the math, logic and strategy you have learnt from the rest of the app. You can even tweet your high score to friends from within the app.
