What questions should we be expecting for Oxford mathematics interview or Cambridge mathematics interview? Here is a detailed explanation of an actual past interview question by a current Oxford mathematician. What kind of questions come up on a Oxford/Cambridge Mathematics Interview? 1. How would you prove that the square root of 3 is irrational? 2. Do there exist 2 integers, x and y such that x^2 + y^2 = 1 000 003? 3. There are 30 people in one room. What is the probability that exactly 2 of them have the same birthday? As a Social Enterprise founded by 4 recent Oxbridge graduates, GuruMe aims to be the one stop platform for all Oxbridge applicants that offers 1) guidance resources written and compiled by current students and 2) chance to meet current students for very affordable p...
Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB Benjamin makes numbers dance. In his day job, he's a professor of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College; in his other day job, he's a "Mathemagician," taking the stage to perform high-speed mental calculations, memorisations and other astounding mathematic stunts. It's part of his drive to teach math and mental agility in interesting ways, following in the footsteps of such heroes as Martin Gardner. TEDxOxford is organised by University of Oxford students, aiming to bring together the young minds of tomorrow's world with the movers and shakers of today.

Roger Heath-Brown is one of Oxford's foremost mathematicians. His work in analytic number theory has been critical to the advances in the subject over the past thirty years and garnered Roger many prizes. As he approached retirement, Roger gave this interview to Ben Green, Waynflete Professor of Mathematics in Oxford and himself a leading figure in the field of number theory. In the interview Roger reflects on his influences, his achievements and the pleasures that mathematics has given him.
Robert May, Baron May of Oxford; Professor, Zoology, Oxford University and Imperial College October 2, 2012 2012 Stanislaw Ulam Memorial Lectures May explores the extent to which beauty has guided, and still guides, humanity's quest to understand how the world works, with a brief look at the interactions among beliefs, values, beauty, truth, and our expectations for tomorrow's world.
From early mathematical inspiration at school in Duffield, Derbyshire, Nigel recalls his often unplanned progress via Jesus College, Oxford, Princeton, Cambridge and Warwick, before his final return to Oxford. Along the way such luminaries as Michael Atiyah and Simon Donaldson play their part as Nigel talks about time spent with physicists in Cambridge, the Eureka moments when the answers take shape, to his final reflections on a career where the name Hitchin is attached to so many of the tools of modern geometry and which culminated in the award of the 2016 Shaw Prize.
Marcus du Sautoy, mathematician and author of The Great Unknown, explained how mathematics could prove that time doesn't exist. He told Business Insider: "If you take the laws of physics, it is actually possible to write all of these laws to take time out of the equation. "So maybe time is just a human invention, it’s sometimes called an emergent property, that it isn’t really there at all. But I think most of us have a strong sense that there is something flowing that we call time. "But what it really is, we are not really too sure." -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI UK on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1Nz3jG3 Follow BI UK On Facebook: http://bit.ly/1VWDkiy Read more: http://uk.businessinsider.com/?IR=C -------------------------------------------------- ...
In this series of physics lectures, Professor J.J. Binney explains how probabilities are obtained from quantum amplitudes, why they give rise to quantum interference, the concept of a complete set of amplitudes and how this defines a "quantum state". Notes and problem sets here http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/JamesBinney/lectures.html
Jo Boaler explains why mathematics is so traumatic for many people and shows a different way that people can relate to mathematics. She also shares the latest brain science to show the ways our brains process mathematics, the importance of visual learning and the importance of self belief to our learning and our experiences. Jo Boaler is an award winning writer and educator, a professor at Stanford and co-founder of youcubed.org. She leads a movement to change the ways teachers and students think about and experience mathematics. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
