How can we make maths more accessible, promote its many applications, and encourage more women to enter the field? These are the questions we aim to address with Mathematigals.

Caoimhe Rooney and Jessica Williams met in 2015 at the start of their PhDs in mathematics in Oxford, and in 2020, they co-founded Mathematigals. Mathematigals is an online platform producing content to demonstrate fun mathematical curiosities, showcase ways maths can be used in real life, and promote female mathematicians. Mathematigals primarily produces animated videos that present maths in a way that is engaging to the general public.

In this session, Jess and Caoimhe will talk about their initial motivation to begin Mathematigals, demonstrate the process behind their content creation, and describe their future visions for the platform. The session will end with an opportunity for the audience to provide feedback or ideas to help Mathematigals on their journey to encourage future mathematicians.

Are you interested in sharing your love of Maths with the next generation of mathematicians, but you don’t know where to start? In this session we will discuss some basic principles and top tips for creating a workshop for students aged 14–16, and get you started on developing your own. There will also be the opportunity to work on this further afterwards and potentially deliver your session as part of the Oxfordshire Maths Masterclasses (for local school students) in Hilary Term. Bring along your favourite bit of maths and a willingness to have a go.
