Koko, a talking gorilla by Barbet Schroeder( Visual )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Koko, a six-year-old gorilla, is the subject of a controversial Stanford University research project conducted by Penny Patterson. A perceptive simian who communicates with humans via sign language, Koko knows more than 300 signs and can combine them to make new hybrid descriptions. Director Schroeder and cinematographer Almendros present a visual argument exposing the contradictions that arise when scientific experiments are used to graph human behavior onto animals

Hard problems the road to the world's toughest math contest by George Paul Csicsery( Visual )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About the extraordinarily gifted students who represented the United States in 2006 at the world's toughest math competition: the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). It is the story of six American high school students who competed with 500 others from 90 countries in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The film shows the dedication and perseverance of these remarkably talented students, the rigorous preparation they undertake, and the joy they get out of solving challenging problems. It captures the spirit that infuses the mathematical quest at the highest level"--Container
I want to be a mathematician a conversation with Paul Halmos( Visual )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this interview, Paul Halmos, talks about his thoughts on mathematics, how to teach mathematics and also how to write about it
Julia Robinson and Hilbert's tenth problem( Visual )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julia Robinson was the first woman elected to the mathematical section of the National Academy of Sciences, and the first woman to become president of the American Mathematical Society. While tracing Robinson's contribution to the solution of Hilbert's tenth problem, the film illuminates how her work led to an unusual friendship between Russian and American colleagues at the height of the Cold War."--Container
To prove and conjecture : excerpts from three lectures by Paul Erdʺos by Paul Erdős( Visual )

7 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

porridge pulleys and Pi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in Undetermined and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A portrait of two very different mathematicians, porridge pulleys and Pi features Fields medalist Vaughan Jones, one of the world's foremost knot theorists and an avid windsurfer, and Hendrik lenstra, a number theorist with a passion for Homer and all things classical. Porridge pulleys and Pi poses the question: how do we get first-rate research mathematicians? Hendrik lenstra and Vaughan Jones have had an extraordinary impact on mathematics; this charming documentary gives the viewer a taste of their personalities, mathematical and otherwise. A whirlwind tour of knots, geonomics, cryptography, music, Homer, elliptic curves, art, and windsurfing, the video contains sections on the history of Pi, and a suprising discovery involving a cocoa tin and an Escher print
Hungry for monsters by George Paul Csicsery( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depicts a nightmare of persecution and injustice as it traces one family's ordeal with recovered memory therapy and the implantation of false memories
Counting from infinity : Yitang Zhang and the twin prime conjecture( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 2013, a lecturer at the University of New Hampshire submitted a paper to the Annals of Mathematics. Within weeks word spread--a little-known mathematician, with no permanent job, working in complete isolation had made an important breakthrough towards solving the Twin Prime Conjecture. Yitang Zhang's techniques for bounding the gaps between primes soon led to rapid progress by the Polymath Group, and a further innovation by James Maynard. The film is a study of Zhang's rise from obscurity and a disadvantaged youth to mathematical celebrity ... interwoven with a history of the Twin Prime Conjecture as told by several mathematicians, many of whom have wrestled with this enormously challenging problem in Number Theory--Daniel Goldston, Kannan Soundararajan, Andrew Granville, Peter Sarnak, Enrico Bombieri, James Maynard, Nicholas Katz, David Eisenbud, Ken Ribet, and Terry Tao"--Container
Taking the long view the life of Shiing-shen Chern( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the life of a remarkable mathematician whose formidable mathematical contributions were matched by an approach and vision that helped build bridges between China and the West. The biographical documentary follows Shiing-shen Chern through many of the most dramatic events of the 20th century, portraying a man who dedicated his life to pure mathematics with the style of a classical Chinese sage. Shiing-shen Chern (1911-2004) is considered a father of modern differential geometry."--Film website
The sex industry by George Paul Csicsery( Book )

Navajo math circles( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Follows Navajo students in a lively collaboration with mathematicians. The math circles approach emphasizes student-centered learning by putting children in charge of exploring mathematics to their own joy and satisfaction. The documentary reveals the challenges in education for the Navajo Nation. Applications of math in Native culture provide tools for increasing math literacy, highlighting the special connections between Navajo culture, natural beauty, and mathematics. The presence of math circles raises the hopes of parents, students, and teachers for a brighter future"--Container
The right spin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1997 Michael Foale was the American astronaut on board the Russian space station Mir at the time of a failed docking attempt with an unmanned Progress supply ship. The supply ship collided with Mir, punching a hole in one of the modules of Mir, damaging a number of the solar panels, and inducing a tumbling motion that prevented the remaining solar panels from pointing toward the sun. Michael Foale provides his personal account of the experience, and explains the mathematical methods involved in rescuing Mir from what would almost certainly have been its demise had they been forced to evacuate and leave it tumbling without power until it burned up re-entering the earth's atmosphere
