Hello everyone. I'm going to be running a maths club when I go back to college (in September), so has anyone got any suggestions for interesting (but, not overly complicated) maths topics that I could cover? Any ideas would be great, thanks :)

It is a great expirience open a math club in your school, congrats! I won't recomend you a certain topic because all topics could be interesting. Instead of I suggest search beauty problems which impulse them developing creativity. Also try to show them surprising solutions in order to keep them interested and without boring.

Some topics are:
-Pascal triangle and Newton's binom
-Polynoms
-Vieta's formulas
-Medians
-Constructions(geometry)
-Clever manipulations (algebra)
-Counting of two ways
-Coloring on boards
-Game strategies (tic-tac-toc, timbiriche, four in a row)

Gabriel's horn is very interesting but a little complex.I would choose complex numbers with geometry and proving fundamental theorem of calculus at first but take more complex topics later

Anything in particular. I am currently thinking of doing complex numbers with geometry, fractals, Gabriel's Horn, proof of the Fundamental Theorem of calculus etc...

How about the topic covered by this note?

Constructible Regular Polygons

It's a great tie-in for a wide range of subjects in mathematics, including Galois Theory. You mentioned "complex numbers with geometry", right?
