The mathematicians vividly communicate the excitement and wonder that fuel their work as they explore the world through its patterns, shapes, motions, and probabilities. Computer animations and analogies drawn from the visual arts are incorporated, to maximize accessibility to the fascinating concepts discussed
Who is Fourier? : a mathematical adventure by Transnational College of LEX( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics illuminated( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explores major themes in the field of mathematics, from the earliest study of prime numbers to the cutting edge mathematics used to reveal the shape of the universe. Mathematics is presented as play we engage in to answer deep questions that are relevant in our world today"--Publisher description
Probability( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes how to use statistics to determine risk and how to calculate the likelihood of two and three independent events occurring simultaneously. Dramatized segments and computer animations involve learning how risk factors influence the cost of car insurance; assessing a fire department's request for a new truck and crew; and figuring out the odds of dice combinations
Percentages( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes how to calculate with percentages and interpret and use percentage figures that appear in diagrams and charts. Dramatized segments and computer animations include calculating payroll deductions; figuring out the marked-down price of sale items at the mall; analyzing Corvette buying trends and statistics at a plant and a showroom; and deciding which type of bank CD will maximize return on investment. --website
Area and volume( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the geometric principles behind the sinking of the Titanic-and how is a ship of its size able to float in the first place? This program examines applications of area and volume, using the Titanic, the Louvre's Glass Pyramid, and New York's CitiGroup Building to illustrate the concepts of volume and density, surface area, and surface area-to-volume ratio. Knowing the proportion of the Citigroup's surface to its interior space is the first step in determining how the building can be kept cool in summer and warm in winter. Its unusual shape-a combination of a square and a triangular prism, with a 45-degree-angled roof and stilt-like base-adds complexity to the calculation
Calibration, accuracy and error by John Hansman( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second in a series of eight videos provides an introduction to methods of calibrating such devices as load cells. Viewers are taken to the National Institute of Standards to see how local calibration weights are matched to master reference standards to ensure accuracy
Formulas( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes how to construct formulas and equations, solve equations with one variable, and use formulas in simple computer spreadsheets. Dramatized segments and computer animations demonstrate ways to predict future sales and costs of cordless phones at an electronics store using spreadsheets; select an economical rental car by devising a formula to compare competing rates; and determine a small airplane's gross weight before take-off
Ratios( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The program introduces electric current and voltage and measures these in series and parallel circuits. An experiment to measure resistance is demonstrated and results are shown graphically. Resistance is introduced and calculated from the gradient of V–I graphs. Ohm’s Law is discussed and the V–I graph for a light bulb is plotted. Resistance is shown to depend on the type of metal, the length of a wire, the thickness of a wire and on the temperature, concluding with a demonstration of a superconductor. Animations of positive ions and free electrons explain the observed behaviour
Fast Fourier analysis for finite groups by Daniel N Rockmore( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Positive and negative numbers( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes how to perform computations using positive and negative numbers, interpret the results, and determine the break-even point in a business situation. Dramatized segments and computer animations illustrate why bridges require expansion joints; how to track the rushing yardage of a high school football player; and how to adjust profit and debt to bring a start-up lawn-care business into the black. (20 minutes)--website
Logical reasoning( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes how to recognize and apply inductive and deductive reasoning. Dramatized segments and computer animations involve determining a crime suspect's guilt or innocence based on clues from a series of convenience store robberies; finding a strategy for winning a game played with coins; and matching students to the sports or musical instruments they play as a part of a puzzle--website
Level spacings for SL(2,p) by John Lafferty( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We investigate the eigenvalue spacing distributions for randomly generated 4-regular Cayley graphs on SL₂(F[subscript p]) by numerically calculating their spectra. We present strong evidence that the distributions are Poisson and hence do not follow the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble. Among the Cayley graphs of SL₂(F[subscript p]) we consider are the new expander graphs recently discovered by Y. Shalom. In addition, we use a Markov chain method to generate random 4-regular graphs, and observe that the average eigenvalue spacings are closely approximated by the Wigner surmise."
Coordinates( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes how to identify points, plot ordered pairs on a graph, use map coordinates to find locations, and apply graphical break-even anaylsis to linear functions. Dramatized segments and computer animations illustrate ways to describe positions on a game board using coordinates; program an industrial robot to assemble TVs in a factory; use a road map while traveling; and evaluate the impact of franchise costs and product prices on profit at a frozen yogurt bar company
Adapted diameters and the efficient computation of Fourier transforms on finite groups by David K Maslen( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beauty of symmetry( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In mathematics, symmetry has more than just a visual or geometric quality. Mathematicians comprehend symmetries as motions--motions whose interactions and overall structure give rise to an important mathematical concept called a 'group.' This unit explores Group Theory, the mathematical quantification of symmetry, which is key to understanding how to remove structure from (i.e., shuffle) a deck of cards or to fathom structure in a crystal."--Annenberg website
Fractions : any way you slice it( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video describes the meaning of fractions and how to solve problems involving sums and products. Dramatized segments and computer animations focus on adjusting ingredient amounts to vary the yield of recipes at a bakery; deciding whether to hire an untrained worker at a bike shop by projecting overtime wages and short-term productivity loss; and learning to read musical notation including fractional measures.--website
Connecting with networks( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Connections can be physical, as with birdges, or immaterial, as with friendships. Both types of connections can be understood using the same mathematical framework called network theory, or graph theory, which is a way to abstract and quantify the notion of connectivity. This unit looks at how this branch of mathematics provides insights into extremely complicated networks such as ecosystems"--Container.
