Mathematics in Movies: Harvard Prof Curates 150+ Scenes

Oliver Knill teaches calculus, linear algebra and differential equations at Harvard, and, several years back, he pulled together a fairly nifty collection of Mathematics Scenes in Movies. Over 150 films are represented here, everything from Good Will Hunting, A Beautiful Mind, Jurassic Park (above) to Alice in Wonderland (1951), The Maltese Falcon and Apocalypse Now. You can watch each scene in flash format on Knill's site, or download them as a quicktime file. And, math buffs, don't miss our collection of Free Online Math Courses, a subset of our meta list, 1,300 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
