great fun and
A dynamic and inspiring tour of Maths stories and tricks, demonstrating its history, importance and uses across the world...!
Mathmagics is an interactive show, adaptable to suit all levels and timings, using props and many an intrepid volunteer…!
David is happy to perform to as many can fit into the space - from Reception to Year 9 and beyond, whole year-groups, even whole schools. Many schools launch and/or close the day with a full-group assembly, whilst for the rest of the day David works with smaller groups, choosing the best activities to suit their energies and abilities. Hence, not only do the pupils have more opportunities to take part, but they’re also left with plenty of activities to practise and share with each other long after the event.
“It was really funny. I never thought maths could be fun until he came in and it inspired me to try harder in maths and to have a go...”
— Georgina Felisi
“I’ve been teaching for fifteen years and that was the Best Maths Presentation I’ve ever seen. It’d make a terrific teacher training session too - to help us get the very most from all our maths resources.”

From the Institute of Telecommunication Professionals’ Christmas Lectures 2016:
“A major success! One of the best of the Christmas Family Presentations I have been involved with !! David is a real "find”.
David Hall is a exceptional, delightful, gentle man who lights up the room with his presentation. Way before David was scheduled to begin, he engaged with his audience and shared different parts of the information which he brings linking into the various pictures, documents etc which were placed all over any available place within the room.
We did not get a hour; we got nearer 1.5 hours and he could have kept going all afternoon. The audience were thrilled, thoroughly entertained, totally involved and went home happy and delighted that they had gained knowledge & been treated to a fantastic show!”
— Martin Ingram
Event co-ordinator, the ITP
Each group will experience different activities, tailored to their abilities, which can then be shared after the event.
Fun, exciting and frequently.... quite amazing….!!
