maths with zombies

…because everything’s better with zombies!

Maths is boring, right? Well, quite frankly, yes. Especially when it’s all about how long it takes train A to pass train B given their relative speeds. So, so boring and not exactly relevant to real life, is it? The thing is, it needn’t be this way. Maths problems can be made both much more interesting and more relevant to everyday life. How? By adding zombies! Zombies make everything better and of course, as we all know, one day there will be a zombie apocalypse. When that happens the maths problems posted on this blog are the ones you’ll need to be able to do if you want to survive in a world where the dead walk again…

…This is the world of Maths With Zombies!


I’ll post the first zombie-related maths problem on Thursday the 18th of April 2013 at 15:00 (UK time), and then add a new one at the same time each week for the foreseeable future. There’s no prizes or anything on offer, I’m just posting them for fun. If you are so minded, you can also view them as useful training exercises for the inevitable zombie apocalypse that will one day bring humanity to its knees. After all, that’s when being able to do Maths With Zombies will really come into its own!
