Does Alice in Wonderland have hidden maths equations?

Science communicator, Cobi Smith, and University of Adelaide mathematician, David Butler, have come together to do just this – they’re presenting a show for National Science Week, which suggests that the story of Alice in Wonderland has multiple mathematical equations hidden within. Intrigued?

They joined Tim Brunero in the studio to help solve this mathematical dilemma!
