MatRIC is collaborating with The Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions (UHR) to develop mathematics video resources to support students' transition from upper secondary school to higher education. In this colloquium, which is organized in collaboration with the University of Tromsø, a selection of videos from the first phase of production will be presented. A keynote lecture will be presented by John Jaworski who has produced mathematics videos for the UK Open University and BBC.
