Mathematics in Movies

This is a collection of movie clips in which Mathematics appears. The movies can be played online, on PC, on iphone/ipad or downloaded to be included into a presentation. The collection was curated by Oliver Knill, Department of Mathematics at Harvard University between March 2006 - July 2011. A fun way to introduce maths...
