Careers in Maths… it’s not what you might think!

Some people, including many of our students, have a view that much of the maths that they learn at school is not really relevant in ‘the real world’ and may have quite specific ideas about the types of careers that would likely make use of maths.

Check out this wonderful Ted Talk by Pixar’s director of photography, Danielle Feinberg, and get a taste of the wonderful and inspiring ways that she uses maths, science and code as part of her job.  Consider how many people worldwide will have watched and loved these films and challenge your students to think again about the endless possibilities that pursuing an interest in maths can offer them.
