Sorry, Think Maths have not made any teacher resources for this video, but check out their resources for all my other videos here:

– At 18:32 I dip the non-crust end of my pizza in the garlic dipping sauce. I wanted to confess that before anyone complains. It was a long day.
– I said that Cardiff has platforms 1 through 8 and actually there is no 5. I had no idea! I only realised watching Geoff’s video.
– Let me know if you spot anything else!

Thanks as always for Jane Street being my principal sponsor.
