Rob Eastaway – ‘Cheating, Competing & Coca Cola Show’

March 12, 2020 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

Rob Eastaway is Director of Maths Inspiration a national programme of interactive maths lecture shows for teenagers. He is an author whose books on everyday maths include the bestselling ‘Why Do Buses Come In Threes?’ and The Hidden Maths of Sport. He appears regularly on BBC Radio 4

A famous Coca Cola advertisement used the line “I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony”. Yet Coca Cola and Pepsi have been competing viciously with each other for decades. Collaboration and competition are everywhere around us, and mathematics and game theory can tell us a lot about why peace, harmony and love are not quite as easy to achieve as the songs might suggest.
