  • Mathematics as Hidden Reality - Edward Frenkel, Ph.D.

    "There's a secret world out there. A hidden parallel universe of beauty and elegance, intricately intertwined with ours. And it's invisible to most of us." Imagine that you had to take an art class in which they taught you only how to paint a fence or a wall, but never showed you the paintings of the great masters. Alas, this is how math is taught, and so for most of us it becomes the intellectual equivalent of watching paint dry. Edward Frenkel wants to open this secret world to all of us because it can teach us so much about the mysteries of the Universe. In this talk, he weaves the discovery of math with his personal journey, addressing the existential questions of finding out who we are; of truth, courage, and passion.

Although around 40% of the UK undergraduates in mathematics are women, there is a well-documented leaking pipeline when it comes to women choosing to do a PhD and then choosing an academic career path. The proportion of women mathematicians declines rapidly the higher one looks on the academic ladder. Unfortunately, this often makes women who do choose this career path invisible, to students who are about to choose their A-levels, even to students who are already pursuing a maths degree. Therefore the women at the School of Mathematical Sciences at University of Nottin...

58% of students eligible for free school meals fail to achieve a maths GCSE at grade A*-C. There is a strong need for STEM graduates to join the teaching profession and we face particular demand from schools across the country for maths, science and computer science & ICT teachers. This film follows a pupil from one of our partner schools as he walks around his neighbourhood, seeing the maths behind everyday activities. We then see him arrive at school and take part in his maths lesson. This is where we meet his maths teacher -- the individual who has helped him to understand and getting excited by the science that is taking place all around him. As a Teach First maths teacher you have the chance to share your passion for your subject and inspire a future generation, as well as develop skills that will stand you in set you up as a great leader. http://graduates.teachfirst.org.uk

In August 2014 Maryam Mirzakhani, a professor at Stanford University, became the first woman to win the Fields Medal for achievements in mathematics, a medal comparable in prestige to a Nobel Prize, first awarded in 1936. Although around 40% of the UK undergraduates in mathematics are women, there is a well-documented leaking pipeline when it comes to women choosing to do a PhD and then choosing an academic career path. The proportion of women mathematicians declines rapidly the higher one looks on the academic ladder. Unfortunately, this often makes women who do choose this career path invisible, to students who are about to choose their A-levels, even to students who are already pursuing a maths degree. Therefore the women at the School of Mathematical Sciences at University of Nottingham have made some videos to:become more visible and thus hopefully inspire others; fight stereotypes; talk about what it is like to be a mathematician in academia today and why they chose academia; communicate the passion they feel for what they do and what they love about it; describe the creativity needed for research. And yes - it can be combined with having a family!
