Mathematical Videos for Education

In recent years a variety of animated and narrated Mathematics has been produced as film or video. The topics cover all aspects of Mathematics and the techniques include all cinematic formats such as filmed presentations, talks and performances, reportages and especially computer animations.

MathFilmDVDMathFilm Festival 2008

The MathFilm DVD presents a juried collection of innovative short math videos. The films are winners of the international competition of the MathFilm Festival 2008. Following the May premiere in Berlin, the festival films are shown in public viewings throughout Germany. The festival is part of the “Year of Mathematics” initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The films target a broad audience of students, teachers, and everyone with an interest in mathematics. The topics range from geometry to graphics, from computing to visualization, from historic to modern achievements, from abstract mathematical worlds to real-world applications. The DVD provides entertaining and informative insights into modern mathematics and is an exciting resource for lively school and university courses.


The DVD has been published by Springer and is available at:
