What Can Mathematicians Do?

What Can Mathematicians Do?

What Can Mathematicians Do? was a series of online public maths presentations organised by Newcastle University’s School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics.

The presentations covered a wide range of topics in maths, stats and physics, such as how colours mix, how to make a mint on the stock market, and how to pick your next Netflix binge.

All of the presenters are disabled: we hope to show that anyone can be a mathematician, and mathematicians can do just about anything!

Each session consisted of two 30-minute presentations, followed by a question-and-answer session.

The live sessions were interpreted live in British Sign Language. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to include the interpreters in the session recordings.

There is a recording of each session, including the question-and-answer part, as well as independent recordings of each talk.
