How to Solve Equations

How do mathematicians solve equations? Dr Vicky Neale (Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford) explores some equations, and covers some highlights from the rich history of number theory along the way.

This talk was given to an audience of 16-17 year olds.

I would like to add a big thank you to Dr Vicky Neale for this engaging talk on solving equations and helping to inspire young people to be mathematicians. I enjoyed it enormously and having got my doctorate in 1983 in mechanical engineering, I have recently returned to mathematics by studying A level maths for 'fun and relaxation' as my wife calls it. I aspire to be a reasonable mathematician.

this is cool

thanks for making and posting the video, I really enjoyed it!
