Norman Fenton at Maths in Action Day (Warwick University)

Today Norman Fenton was one of the five presenters at the Mathematics in Action Day at Warwick University - the others included writer and broadcaster Simon Singh and BBC presenter Steve Mould (who is also part of the amazing trio Festival of the Spoken Nerd which features Queen Mary's Matt Parker). The Maths in Action day is specifically targeted at A-Level Maths students and their teachers.

Norman says:
This was probably the biggest live event I have spoken at - an audience of 550 in the massive Butterworth Hall (which has recently hosted Paul Weller and the Style Council, Jools Holland) - so it was quite intimidating. My talk was on "Fallacies of Probability and Risk" (the powerpoint slides are here). I hope to get some photos of the event uploaded shortly.
