The UK is in the midst of a reform of the National Curriculum. Creating a Curriculum is hard work and the process creates high emotion: anxiety, anger and righteous indignation. I shall say a very little about that and shall use it as a starting point for the question what every mathematician coming to Cambridge ought to know. I shall propose a way to think about that in terms of what I regard as a special category of emblematic problems. I shall give examples from my own experience and reading but the main aim of the talk is to solicit further examples from the Cambridge mathematics community.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
