Over the past several months I have had the opportunity to work with school officers to different places around the nation such as Rawalkot, Havelian, Rahim Yar Khan, and Muzaffarabad— to learn more about their education systems. And how technology can play its part in bringing innovation and assistance to teachers. These visits have underscored for me how factors like rapidly advancing technologies and global economic integration increasingly connect us all to communities throughout the world.

The social and economic impact of technology is widespread and accelerating. The speed and volume of information have increased exponentially. Experts are predicting that 90% of the entire population will be connected to the internet within 10 years. With the internet of things, the digital and physical worlds will soon be merged. These changes herald exciting possibilities. But they also create uncertainty. And our kids are at the centre of this dynamic change.
Taking that internship in a remote mountain lab might not have been the best idea. Pulling that lever with the skull symbol just to see what it did probably wasn’t so smart either. But now is not the time for regrets because you need to get away from these mutant zombies…fast. Can you use math to get you and your friends over the bridge before the zombies arrive? Alex Gendler shows how.

Mathematics is important to us all. So it is important to enable young mathematicians, clear-thinking and passionate about their subject, to contribute at the highest level. Peter Cameron will talk about his experience designing and presenting a course for first-semester university students aiming to produce mathematicians.
This is the 2013 joint London Mathematical Society / Gresham College lecture.
The transcript and downloadable versions of this event by Professor Peter Cameron are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and…
The “gender gap” that is found in educational attainment is a very complex issue. The number of factors that influence why any given person does what they do are enormous, and to try and definitively prove causality in a topic as complex as this would be extremely hard.
