The following report is my report in Mathematics Today August. – The thought may or may not be welcome during the summer break, but the new intake of undergraduates will arrive shortly and my thoughts turn to engaging them with the IMA. A number of universities send out information to incoming students after A-Level results… Read more »

# Careers for Mathematicians

In my report to Mathematics Today June, I mentioned that, In the Student Section this issue is a piece adapted from a careers advice leaflet produced for mathematics students by Bath Careers Advisory Service by Sue Briault. I hope you will find this, as I did, packed with useful advice. “Careers for Mathematicians” is now… Read more »

# IMA Membership: An option for Oxford Mathematicians?

Last week I attended the Maths Options Fair at the University of Oxford. This is for third year undergraduates to consider their options and I was invited to this by Audrey Curnock of the Mathematical Institute so I could meet those students and make them aware of the IMA. The event was well attended. I… Read more »

# The West of England

On Tuesday I attended the launch of a new IMA Branch: West of England. This is very pleasing as the Branches have the potential to be a huge benefit to members. The champions of this are Garrod Musto, Dr Alison Hooper and Edward Glennie. Garrod is Head of Mathematics at Kingswood Senior School in Bath… Read more »
