Webinar on Movies as a Teaching Resource in the Math Classroom

The Webinar on Movies as a Teaching Resource in the Math Classroom took place on Friday, September 17th, 2021 from 12 pm until 1:30 pm, with Alfonso J. Poblacion, member of the Spanish Mathematical Royal Society (RSME), as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker presented several examples about how mathematics has contributed in the development of the movie industry. Alfonso J. Poblacion then shared various movie scenes in which a mathematical reference appears. The speaker also recommended his book “Mathematics in the Movies” and the Facebook page with that same name in Spanish, as well as DivulgaMAT, a portal for the dissemination of mathematics created by the Spanish Mathematical Royal Society (RSME). This virtual event was co-organized with the Spanish Mathematical Royal Society (RSME).
