# Dr. MATHS RANDOMNESS SHOW • Steve Humble

**Understanding if events are random or have some underlying structure is a fascinating area of mathematics, filled with great discoveries. A Math Magic show with Mr. Math.**

In the short run, chance may seem to be volatile and unfair. Considering the misconceptions, inconsistencies, paradoxes and counter intuitive aspects of probability, it is not a surprise that as a civilization it has taken us a long time to develop some methods to deal with this. In antiquity, chance mechanisms, such as coins, dice and cards were used for decision making and there was a strong belief in the fact that God or Gods controlled the outcome. Even today, some people see chance outcomes as fate or destiny – “that which was meant to be”
