Department of Mathematics

From the satellites that predict weather patterns to the musical creations of Mozart, math is — and always has been — a powerful tool for global understanding and communication. It is integral to all professions including engineering, video game design, and medicine. The mathematics you engage with are relevant to every STEM discipline and are becoming increasingly important tools in almost all fields of study. Studying math builds critical thinking skills which improves the ability to analyze statistical information in the face of uncertainty, clarify options, model alternatives, and consider potential consequences — all of which are necessary for success in today’s workplaces.


The Mathematics Department is located on the 2nd floor of the Academic Building in room 2-100

Math Podcasts



A podcast dedicated to sharing our guests' favorite mathematical results. Follow us on Twitter at @myfavethm.


A series of talks and lectures from Oxford Mathematicians exploring the power and beauty of their subject. These talks would appeal to anyone interested in mathematics and its ever-growing range of applications from medicine to economics and beyond.

undefinedPlaying around with maths and puzzles was something that the two hosts spent their time at university doing together. Now in their late twenties with proper grown up jobs, Alaric and Alex carve out the occasional evening to sit back and smell the numbers. Not all of the mathematics is entry level, but they envisioned this podcast for those people whose science degrees may be long behind them, but who still get a kick out of recreational numbering.
