MAT livestream

MAT livestream every Thursday

Are you thinking of applying to study Mathematics at university? Every Thursday afternoon, we'll be livestreaming maths problems and discussing problem-solving strategies, with a particular focus on Oxford's Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT). The sessions are free, interactive, and available for everyone.

New start time for September 16:30 UK time

Each livestream has a worksheet of maths problems, and during the livestream I'll talk about the question, give you some time to have a go at it, and then talk through how I'd do it (often with suggestions from chat of better ways to do the question!)

Links will appear here for the next livestream.


Upcoming Livestreams

Here's the rough plan for upcoming livestreams;

Date, Time # Topic
24 September, 16:30-18:30 017 (Q5,6,7) with a guest computer scientist
01 October, 16:30-18:30 018 (Q5,6,7) with a guest computer scientist
08 October, 16:30-18:30 019 MAT 2016

22 October, 16:30-18:30 021 MAT 2018
29 October, 16:30-18:30 022 MAT 2019

Previous Livestreams

There's no need to "catch up" on previous livestreams, or to watch them in any particular order, but they're available to watch back below if you like. For each previous livestream, you can download the worksheet to try the problems that we covered live, and you can either watch the entire video on Panopto, or watch a shorter edited version (just the maths, no chat), which we'll upload later. Sorry for the delay with the maths-only edits; they take about two weeks to do, so maths-only edit $n$ comes out at about the same time as livestream $2n$.

Maths-only edits

There's a YouTube playlist for the maths-only edits here.
