Maths Week at Work: a series of videos promoting Mathematics

Five Maths graduates working in different sectors explain how they use Maths in their job. Then they challenge the audience with a puzzle related to their job. A solution to each of the puzzles is also presented.

The videos were initially produced to be used by secondary school teachers during Maths Week Scotland. However, they can also be used by individuals, and they can be used at any time of the year. No much knowledge is required, just curiosity.
