The first 24 Hour Maths show took place in October 2020, when a group of maths presenters got together some mathematicians, magicians and other cool people to put on a 24-hour long online YouTube mathematical magic show. Each half-hour had a different special guest sharing a mathematical magic trick of some kind, giving a total of 48 tricks for you to watch and puzzle over (and since it was Hallowe’en, we included some treats as well). You can find a full list of guests, and links to their parts of the show here.
