The brilliant ‘Map of Mathematopia’ created by Tom Rocks Maths intern Zhaorui Xu has been selected as one of the commended entries in the 2021 Oxford Mathematics Online Exhibition. Below is a copy of the entry in full.
The ‘Map of Mathematopia’ was created working as an intern over the summer with Dr Tom Crawford at ‘Tom Rocks Maths’. The idea of the map is to provide a visual representation of the first year Mathematics course at Oxford, with the layout and terrain demonstrating the links between different topics. An accompanying guide to the realm has also been published, which adds more detail and provides a suggested route through the courses. The guide can be found here.
