Science Documentary 2016: The Math Mystery Mathematics in Nature and Universe

Run time: 53 minutes
* Should take about 1hr 20 minutes for students to view, answer essay questions and have a discussion.

This video guide leads students through this thought provoking documentary about how mathematics is all around us. It poses the unique question of whether the universe behaves according to mathematics? Or if the relationship between the universe and mathematics is a creation of the human mind to explain what is around us? As we learn more about mathematics are we actually learning more about nature of the universe or the nature of the human mind?

This video guide would serve as an excellent opening lesson for a new class of math, engineering or physics students. The video guide includes 20 questions for students to listen for during the video and concludes with 2 high level essay questions. This is a great way to stimulate interest and excitement in the topic of mathematics, physics and engineering.

You could also use this video guide to serve as a sub plan or on days when you need an engaging filler during a crazy schedule change.
