Mathematical headaches? Problem solved!
Hi, I'm Colin, and I'm here to help you make sense of maths
Written by Colin+ in quizzes.
A slight change of pace this week: a game rather than a quiz. Can you sink the enemy ships by firing at the right co-ordinates?
(If the grid doesn’t show up, try refreshing.)
Colin is a Weymouth maths tutor, author of several Maths For Dummies books and A-level maths guides. He started Flying Colours Maths in 2008.
He lives with an espresso pot and nothing to prove.

I teach in my home in Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.
It's a 15-minute walk from Weymouth station, and it's on bus routes 3, 8 and X53. On-road parking is available nearby.

I think it depends on the circumstances. twitter.com/ajk_44/status/9863…

I consider it unwise to ask mathematicians “How likely are you to recommend this hotel?” without specifying the circumstances.

After the Brexit crash and reestablishment of imperial measures, we will only be able to decorate cakes with dozens and scores.
