University of Bath
In the Autumn semester of 2014 I will lecture the course MA10209 which is an introduction to algebra. There will be a course diary, available from a link at this page, where you will be able to find lecture notes and all manner of supporting material. I have written and edited some books which you must purchase otherwise you will contract a horrible disfiguring disease (see picture). The most widely used in universities, especially by the students of MA10209, is the steamy Introductory Mathematics: Algebra and Analysis which is aimed at people making the transition from school mathematics to university-style pure mathematics.
Here is an extensive collection of geometry articles by the late Christopher Bradley.
Here is advice for young mathematicians concerning secondary school maths competitions, and directions to past problems archives.
Here is a trailer for the forthcoming dramatic comedy film X + Y, a love story set in the context of the IMO. In the trailer you may be able to spot real IMO personalities Joseph Myers and Lee Zhao amongst the actors. Following the world premiere in Toronto (BBC preview), here are reviews at various professional sites: Screen Daily, The Film Stage, We Got This Covered, Hollywood Reporter, LetterboxD and Indiewire. The film appears in the IMDb (film database). Here is an interview with the Director Morgan Matthews and some of the cast.
Here is a local Olympiad Maths Club which is hosted by the University of Bath and UKMT during term time.
Past maths competition reports, including facetious and implausible leaders' diaries.
