Mathematics can be cool


Professor Brian Cox isn’t just a nerdy particle physicist. Years ago he was the keyboard player for the famous music group D:Ream which made the hit single Things can only get better. Here is a link to a great little 5 minute video the BBC did with him at The Science Museum where he talks about his life, his work and the big ideas in maths and science.

It’s a great way to show your pupils that not all mathematicians are just mathematicians and that there are big links between the worlds of maths and science.

Thanks to Ben for suggesting this idea.
