John Conway has given us a method to tangle two ropes, with each tangle identified with a rational number.  We start with untangled rope.  With twists and rotations, one can arrive at any rational number.  Remarkably, the tangles can be added, just like rational numbers.  All of this will be demonstrated, with the help of audience members.
