The 'Introduction to University Mathematics' course is taken in the first two weeks of the first year of the Oxford Mathematics degree. It introduces the concepts and ways of mathematical thinking that students need in the years ahead. Much of the context will be familiar from high school but the way we think and write about it, and construct arguments and proofs, is more rigorous.

In summary it is a recap and a pointer to what is to come for our students. We are making the whole course of eight lectures available to anyone who is soon to start mathematics at university or who is pondering whether they should. And anyone else, of course.

Full course

In addition to this course, there are another 70 Oxford Mathematics students lectures on our YouTube Channel  (including three full courses) giving an insight in to all four years of our degree. You are very welcome to dip in.
