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.

A Scene from (The Oxford Murders 2008) Film where a doctorate student in the field of mathematical philosophy attends a Lecture given by prof. Arthur Seldom which he wants to work with and seeks for his recognition.
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.

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.

Please note: Course content may have changed since this film was produced. Cambridge is renowned for the excellence of its Mathematics course. Equally challenging and rewarding, it offers the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects: everything from black holes to the most abstruse logic problems. Two aspects of the course that our students greatly appreciate are its flexibility and the breadth of subjects offered. The amount of choice increases each year and after Year 1 the workload isn't fixed so you can choose the number of options you study to suit your own work pattern. Some students take as many options as they can; others take fewer and study them very thoroughly.

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
A good introduction to the philosophy of mathematics by Ray Monk. He considers the issue of the nature of mathematical truth, what mathematics is actually about, and discusses the views of Plato, Aristotle, Immanuel Kant, Frege and Bertrand Russell... What are numbers? What is mathematics actually about? Is it something discovered or is it something constructed by the mind? From the time of Plato onward, people have regarded mathematical truth as an ideal. Unlike ordinary, empirical truth, mathematical truth seems necessary, eternal, incorrigible, and absolutely certain. This talk considers some of the ways in which philosophers have tried to account for the special nature of mathematical truth. Ray Monk is a British philosopher well known for his writings on Wittgenstein, Bertrand Russel...
