Up on the Roof. When we need a bit of space we can go up to the roof terrace and revel in the English Summer. The space in the foreground will soon be filled by the Building.

True though there is a lot of pondering as to where MOOCs will go. As for for now we are pleased to give a flavour of what we do, even if we get lots of comments about how easy it is (all current online student lectures are recap to some degree). That's fine as well!

More to come next year, though not whole courses. The American Universities have rather stepped back from it recently. As much as anything, we want to give a flavour rather than teach a whole subject. Next year will be second and third year lectures as well as first year.

Sometimes Maths is very systematic, very doable. But often it is not so simple. Might that be part of its attraction? introduces Pure Maths at the Open Day.

Well, you do if you eat muffins while doing crochet. Might cause problems with both though...

Football World Cup? Cricket World Cup? Wimbledon? No, the big competition just now is with weaving patterns v Jim Prop's optimal muffin sharing. You can vote. But no Mathematical Video Assistant Referee we're afraid.

Often the best research is inspired by the seemingly innocuous. You pick up a glass and its coaster remains stuck to the bottom. Insects walk on ceilings. Research investigates adhesion and how it benefits from deformability.

BEM on Screens: not just Science Fiction from the 50s. BEM is not just Bug-Eyed Monsters (Sci-Fi fans will understand). In maths it means Boundary Element Methods. Research investigates scattering at screens and how to precondition systems.
