This series consists of five videos about how Maths is used in the World of Work.  They are aimed at S1-S4 students, but might be suitable for younger or older students because the puzzles do not require much background knowledge.

In each of them a maths graduate explains how maths is used in their job, and then challenge us with a puzzle related to their job.  You will find the videos, puzzles and answers to the puzzles at the link above!

There is also a ‘tips for teachers’ file to help teachers make the most of this resource:
