    Are some statistics better than others? In this BBC podcast series, economist Tim Hartford makes sense of the numbers behind the studies quoted in political debate, news and everyday life. The ten-minute long programmes look at issues as varied as the gender gap in tech, whether people admitted to hospital at weekends are more likely to die, creativity and mental illness, the reliability of psychological studies, the numbers behind the migrant crisis, food surveys and the 8-hour sleeping myth. All the podcasts are available indefinitely.

    Is mathematics the driving force behind modern science? In this BBC podcast series, Professor Marcus du Sautoy shows how mathematic finds a role in the real world. For example, an astronaut and an investment analyst explain the power of calculus; in another episode, it is explained how a solution to an eighteenth century mathematical conundrum paved the way to the search engines we use in internet. Each episode lasts 15 minutes and they are available indefinitely.

    Also known as the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, the institute was founded in 1995 for the purpose of pursuing research into the fundamental laws of gravitation. The Videos, Pictures and Texts section of the website is organised into five categories: Images, Movies and Simulations; AEI Research Reports; Brochures; Max Planck Research and Max Planck Yearbook. The audio-visual content includes short films about Quantum gravity and unified theories, the GEO600 Interviews-where scientists explain the direct detection of gravitational waves-, an interview with Nobel Laureate Rainer Weiss, and an animation illustrating how ATLAS analyses data from the international gravitational wave observatory network. The institute also provides the Einstein online, a resource that presents Einstein’s theories via two main sections: the Elementary Einstein with the basics of relativistic physics, and the Spotlight on Relativity, which explores modern relativity research.

    A public learning laboratory, The Exploratorium, is devoted to just that: exploring the world through science, art and human perception. Their mission is ‘to create inquiry-based experiences that transform learning worldwide’ and perhaps more importantly their vision is ‘a world where people think for themselves and can confidently ask questions, question answers, and understand the world around them’. The museum makes available a vast range of, video programmes, organised by subjects, including: Arts (532 videos), Astronomy and Space (220), Biology (331), Chemistry (97), History (35), Mathematics (19), Nature of Science (13), Perception (55), Physics (215), and Social Science (575). There is also a Websites section with over 35, 000 pages of content, which can be explored by subject too.

    “With regular help just about every student I have encountered makes significant improvements over time”. With this motivation, enthusiastic maths teacher and author Patrick Jones, has been creating short maths videos for over ten years; his vast archive is organised under nine categories: Algebra, Arithmetic, Calculus, Differential Equations, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, Probability and Statistics, Trigonometry and Miscellaneous. The videos use a very straight-forward style so the viewer only has to watch and learn.

    How many streets or place names near you use a mathematical term? Freedom Square, Polygon Road…this website offers a collection of 46 starting points for rich mathematical activity in the classroom. The site lists each of these activities via an intriguing title (e.g. Beach, Polygon Road, Tissues, Coffee cards). It then links the title to three further pages: the ‘beginning’ page, which is an image illustrating the concept behind the title, a ‘prompt’, which offers suggestions for students to start asking mathematical questions, and a ‘teacher’s notes’ page which helps teachers to identify possible problem-solving contexts. The brains behind this practical site is Dr Colin Foster, Assistant Professor at the Centre for Research in Mathematics Education at the University of Nottingham, and with this website he shares his enthusiasm for the art of effective questioning.
