Where maths meets... the world of work!

The AMSP is creating an exciting set of high-quality videos which showcase the maths in different careers. Each video is also linked to one or more activities, so your students can get a real taste of what the career may entail.

The videos are suitable for all students aged 11+. Each person that features tells their story from childhood right through to the present day. We have aimed to use a diverse set of role models and careers in the videos so that the collection hopefully contains something that every student can relate to, whether that is the persons background, their interests or their aspirations. Each video is around 5 minutes long and has a few questions asked throughout which make perfect places to pause and think about maths and careers with your class.

“I was very impressed with the video. Susie strikes a nice balance between her background and honest thoughts about maths with how important they are for what she’s doing now. It was good to see genuine examples of her work and to hear how she gets to feel good about the work (maths) that she’s doing.”
