Math & Technology Videos from Films on Demand:

The Story of Math Series (58:53)
Without mathematics, there would be no physics, chemistry, or astronomy. No architecture. No commerce. No accurate maps or precise time-keeping, therefore no dependable long-range navigation. No geometry, statistics, or calculations of any kind. No computers. In this landmark four-part series, University of Oxford Professor Marcus du Sautoy takes viewers on a journey through the ages and around the world to trace the development of mathematics and see how math has shaped human civilization. Clear explanations of important mathematical ideas supported by anecdotes and pivotal episodes in the lives of great mathematicians make this series as entertaining as it is enlightening.

Math in Technology Series (45:06)
“But why do I need math?” Now, using this series, give students a clear, definitive, and logical answer. Math is necessary to get the job done in most technical fields, including auto mechanics, electricity/electronics, and the building trades. Each video shows real-life problem situations solved by using practical math and actual computations on the screen.

Teaching with Technology Series (2:07:24)
Technology has put a whole new spin on education, redefining the role of teachers and reshaping the classroom learning experience. Drawing on dozens of case studies, this outstanding six-part series captures the excitement of integrating the Internet and other technologies into the curriculum while presenting real-world ways in which they are being applied.

Roles and Responsibilities in IT (27:43)
The field of information technology is continually expanding. What is it like to work in this dynamic industry? Focusing on IT positions at IBM’s overseas operation in Australia, this video outlines the qualifications necessary to be an IT professional while describing associated duties in the areas of product development, sales and marketing, and system development, maintenance, and support.

The Math Life (51:30)
Why did a magician become a mathematician? How can a person see in four dimensions? What does a mathematical proof have in common with a Picasso portrait? This elegant program brings to life the human dimension of mathematics through lively interviews with Freeman Dyson, David Mumford, Ingrid Daubechies, Persi Diaconis, Michael Freedman, Fan Chung Graham, Kate Okikiolu, Jennifer Tour Chayes, Peter Sarnak, Steven Strogatz, and seven other mathematicians. These captivating luminaries vividly communicate the excitement and wonder that fuel their work as they explore the world through its patterns, shapes, motions, and probabilities.
