The University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Mathematics may not initially seem to have much in common with the fashion magazine Vogue – but the two might be more similar than you think!
That’s the hope behind the new video series “7+3.14 Questions,” a playfully pi-themed riff on Vogue’s popular “73 Questions” series. In the Vogue series, a celebrity guest answers 73 questions in a single take. In the new series, co-produced by the Dean of Mathematics office and Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach, a Math student answers a more reasonable 10 questions – or rather, 7+3.14 questions – in a single take.
In the first episode, recent Computer Science and BBA Double Degree graduate Fayk Chaudhry strolls across campus while giving expert advice as to why people should study Math at Waterloo, the benefits students can gain from a degree here, and ways in which Math expertise is relevant to current society. “You’re given the necessary toolset to succeed, should you pick them up and truly apply yourself,” he says.
