You can have fun with maths and be good at it too

According to New Yorker contributor and best selling author Malcolm Gladwell, Asian kids have a distinct advantage over the rest of the world when it comes to maths. Whereas some have purported the theory that there is an IQ differential along racial and ethnic lines, Gladwell claims that it has more to do with structure and methodology than anything else. His theory is based around the much simpler concept that Asian names for numbers are shorter than their English equivalent - meaning it is easier for them to remember more. Going down those lines, it's pretty easy to see that he believes ...  More

Could this be the new Sudoku?

If you have ever read any of Malcolm Gladwell's books you will appreciate the vagaries of the general public. For a start, you can ask yourself why a game like Sudoku took off in such a short amount of time. One minute the only thing that you would find, apart from Peanuts and Hagar The Horrible, on your newspaper's funnies' page was a couple of crosswords. Suddenly, there was a rather taxing little numbers game that sucked everyone in. Now there's at least one Sudoku puzzle in every newspaper.
