Mathematics In Movies

Submitted by Michael Frankfort @mfrank_76


This is a collection of movie clips in which Mathematics appears. It started during spring break 2006 (almost 16 years now). The site has changed in 2010 from Flash to HTML5 video. Direct video links allow a teacher to grab and include a clip, for example into a presentation. Since the formats used from 2006 to 2010 were small scale movies (bandwidth has still been an issue at that time), the movies are since 2016 added as separate pages. This is easier to maintain and extend than an ever growing relational database. It allows to adapt the quality of the movie depending on the available size and sometimes add additional content, pictures, links or comments without having to update a relational database.
