Cut-out paper version of Flippant at MathsJam

Post by robertw » Mon Oct 29, 2018 3:12 am

MathsJam is a monthly event that takes place at pubs around the world on the same night, and one of the groups comes up with a puzzle sheet for all groups to look at. Last month was our turn, so I suggested a cut-out paper version of Flippant for people to try solving.

It was good to see some discussion about it and photos on the MathsJam twitter feed, such as these:

Canterbury, England: "This is deceptively tricky. A good think though."

Melbourne, Australia: "We have 7 people here already and counting! Having fun thinking about possums and playing Flippant."
