    Wow!! You sound v v prepared overall!!!
    I havent really done any maths work exeperience other than helping out in a maths class!!! :/
    What're you going to do with google???
    I'm not sure if i'll get the work experience yet or what i would be doing but fingers and toes crossed!
    I helped out and tutuored various peers nd i really enhoyed that so i am thinking of eventually becoming a maths teacher

    to anyone considering that career i would suggest attending a TDA conference, they are not just for people already in the teaching profession but people thinking about in whilst in uni or even before uni. Really helpful and there were loads of unis there to talk to about my maths degree too!

    I've got that book, it is good =)
    I am still reading it at the minute - it's pretty good as a general maths book. I am loving the barcode bits too!

    I would suggest Professor Ian Stewarts Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities if you enjoy it

    I'd like to do the EPQ and basing it around my degree subject would be advantageous, however I have no idea how to do it based on maths!!!!
    Anyone else either doing it/done it or got any ideas for topics?

    Oh, I've see that in the book shop. I've still got a few other books to get through, so I better finish them before getting anymore! Thanks for the suggestion though

    You guys think its ok to choose NOT to do an EPQ? [Maths related obviously]

    I mean I'm reading books and stuff which I'm fine with but just don't want to do an EPQ. I think I could spend my time doing more worthwhile things tbh.

    It won't make a big difference will it?

    Its good in the sense that it gives you something to talk about should you have an interview. But as long as you have done things that you can talk about (books etc) then you should be fine with not doing an EPQ

    Do you have to have things like that to talk about in the interview? Or do they just ask you maths questions

    They just asked me maths questions. Do an EPQ for your own edification should you desire to.

    I'm planning on doing it, with it being based on something along the lines of Euclid's Elemts/Proof/ Greek mathematics.
    Or something. Not really too sure what the 'question' is going to be.

    How long have you known about the EPQ? I literally only heard of it's existence the other day haha

    Good

    Yeah, I'm too lazy. Recently our school gave us opportunity to do the EPQ but the deadline has gone, and I don't want to do it anyway.

    Hopefully they don't ask about the cheese on my PS either

    Careful dropping your 4th subject.. I think it's Warwick who don't like that if you do M + FM.
