From triangles, rotations and power laws to fractals, cones and curves, mathematics informs our lives in ways we cannot - or refuse to - imagine. Alex narrates a series of eye-opening encounters with lively personalities from all over the world as he conveys the joy of mathematical thinking with his signature wit and limitless enthusiasm.
