Mathematics

Welcome to the Maths Society. Anyone can join. Yes, you in Journalism, Engineering, Media Production, Marketing and Theatre. Any subject.

But why would you?

Because our Society needs talent from across the University to help us create amazing maths videos, write blogs, report on events and tell stories of the beautful, yes beautiful, world of maths.

For example, did you know: the seeds in a sunflower, galaxies, shells and many other things in the universe are arranged according to the Golden Ratio!

In 2019/20 we created a Maths Society Website and YouTube channel featuring videos created in the Green Screen Studio in Markeaton Street. The pandemic interrupted our plans a little in 2020/21 and we learnt a few editing skills at home.

Now we're back we hope to use everything we've learnt to improve the channel. Whatever you're studying please use us to your hearts content for your projects, portfolios and coursework. Just ask. You can work on an existing video project or suggest your own. Everyone involved gets a badge.

And if you want to appear in one of our videos... well, you had us at "hello".

Other services we provide/support:

  • Maths Cafe (Maths support for any student - see link to the right)
  • Maths Certificate (Maths skill verification for any student - details soon)
  • Industry associations and career support
  • Screenings and other events
  • Weekly pub quizz at the Bless pub
  • Alumni gathering

You can join the society if you are a student, alumni or a lecturer at the University of Derby - in any subject. You will also be entered into a prize draw on Friday 12th November 2021 for a Maths Society Mug.
