We have several members of staff who are using YouTube to enhance their teaching and solidify students' understanding of mathematical methods and concepts.
UNSW Mathematics and Statistics has its own YouTube channel - subscribe to keep up to date with the latest content. We post a range of videos, including those with course-specific material.

We also have several members of staff who are using YouTube to enhance their teaching, and as an alternative to more traditional methods of communication. The videos available on the YouTube channels below range from worked examples from the undergraduate syllabus to sometimes controversial lectures on the history, foundations and philosophy of science and mathematics. The makers of these videos would welcome your feedback, which can be provided via YouTube.
Note that although UNSW has provided support to produce some of these videos, they are personal presentations by the staff members involved. The views expressed and the content presented in these videos are the personal views of the authors and are not necessarily endorsed by the School of Mathematics and Statistics. Students in particular should note that any instructional videos on these channels are not necessarily appropriate in level or method for the particular course they are enrolled in. If in doubt, please ask your course lecturer.
Chris Tisdell's YouTube channel has attracted tens of millions of views.
Some of his playlist topics include Differential Equations, Introduction to Complex Numbers, Introduction to Vectors and Calculus for Beginners.
In 2010, Prof Tisdell became the first Australian (in any field) to be made an official “YouTube Partner in Education (Australia)”.
Norman Wildberger's YouTube channel has almost 100,000 subscribers.
He has a range of playlists which include videos on Math Foundations, Math History, and Universal Hyperbolic Geometry, among others.
Prof Wildberger was selected as an official "YouTube Partner in Education (Australia)" in 2011.
Denis Potapov's YouTube channel contains an assortment of mathematical demonstrations, including videos on isometrical transformations of spherical triangles, and pendulum waves simulation.
He also has an Advanced Maths Lecture series.
Randell Heyman's YouTube channel features animated videos to explain interesting mathematics, and his range of videos aim to assist a broad range of people, including students, to understand the language of mathematics.
