One of our favourite problems from our sister site NRICH opens a door to the world of combinatorics and symmetry.

Pilot wave theory is an extension of quantum mechanics that doesn't exhibit any of that weird randomness or fuzziness. But that doesn't mean it's totally sane. Here is a quick introduction.

Imagine your weight depended on the colour of your underwear! Something quite similar happens with measurements in quantum physics. Find out more here...

The Kochen-Specker theorem shows that quantum mechanics is always going to be strange. Its proof is surprisingly simple!

What does contextually mean for real-life measurements and what does it have to do with religious questions?

A useful tool for spotting trends in data.

A little bit of maths can go a long way in telling the truth from lies.

Can you encode a message so that errors in transmission are automatically corrected?
