We designed this show to fit comfortably within a lesson. If you're still worried that you have to convince your SLT that this show is worth watching during school hours, here are some curriculum topics we touched on:
Parabolas (a lot!)
The probability of two events
Acceleration due to gravity
Remember, this is a Maths Inspiration show, not an exam skills lesson
