  • A traffic engineer looks at the number and the severity of road accidents to determine if the accident rate is higher than it should be for a particular section of road. I use mathematical analysis to do that. If the accident rate is higher than expected, then action is needed. Regression models and statistics are used to analyse the data. To maintain a consistent approach to different road situations, I take into account the same variables for e...

  • I'm the head statistician at a company that collects statistics from AFL matches. At the end of a game I get a file that contains everything that happened during the game event by event. My job is to splice and dice all of this data, using statistical tools, to give the clubs something from all of that information that is meaningful and that might give them an advantage in the next game. An example is looking at centre square involvements - c...

  • Maths is extremely important in this business. Airfares are an exercise in logistics and maths. Mathematics is critical to making a profit in the travel industry. We take into account every cost involved in planning a trip - from postage stamps, to bus tours and hotels. People who want to work in travel do a specialised training course and maths is a big part of that. I like to employ people with a good maths ability. We live and die by our maths...

  • It is the basics, percentages and fractions, that are used constantly in nursing. Most universities require mathematics as a prerequisite to get into a nursing course so you really do need to continue maths up to Year 12. My job is a paediatric nurse at the Royal Children’s Hospital. There is plenty of maths in nursing, we are constantly calculating. For the different types of drugs we give to children, we work out exactly how much they will need...

  • I am doing an apprenticeship as a builder and carpenter so that one day I’ll be able to step up and co‑ordinate a multi‑million dollar building project. Construction demands a lot of you mathematically. One of my main tasks is to work out quantities for concrete pours. This involves measuring and calculating volume — if I make a mistake, it is going to cost a lot of money! Setting out a building accurately is part of the everyday work for the for...

  • You absolutely have to do a heap of maths to get into this industry now, mainly because vehicles are so electronically reliant. You need electronic skills as well as mechanical skills. A good maths background will give you a head start. I use maths every day, though mostly I'm not aware of it. I measure threads on engine parts, engine sizes and capacity of engines for oil. I do a lot of unit conversion from imperial to metric and use estimati...

  • Dr Emily Cross is a senior lecturer in cognitive neuroscience and is researching how our brains are shaped by experience when we learn complex actions or skills, such as dancing. In this clip, she explains how doing a simple dance like the Macarena reveals how easy it to copy a simple movement and how this can help scientists understand how the brain learns more complex movements. This video is part of 'Soapbox Science' - an annual event ...

Marcus du Sautoy talks about how the equations that describe how the universe works are every bit as beautiful as a piece of classical music or an impressionist painting.
