Prime numbers are fundamentally important in mathematics. Discover some of the beautiful properties of prime numbers, and learn about some of the unsolved problems that mathematicians are working on today.
This talk by Dr Vicky Neale (Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford) was originally given to an audience of Year 12 A-level Maths students (aged 16-17). The talk formed part of a mathematics enrichment day we organised with a special focus on encouraging creative mathematical thinking. It was recorded on 19 June 2015.
