I was looking through the links to movies with math themes, and a question came up.
On the site showing the movies, the text says that there are “mathematical themes and patterns motivated by math” in the introduction scene for the James Bond movie, Casino Royale, this clip:
I’ve watched the clip a few times, and I have my own ideas as to mathematical themes and patterns.
But I thought I’d open it up. Watch this clip and comment on what math themes and patterns you can find in the introduction. It will be fun to hear the various things that people find. If you are a teacher or parent, feel free to ask your students or children what mathematical themes and patterns they see. It could be anything.
Just add a comment to this post, and I’ll share any comments so we can all take a look …
This gives us all a good chance to think about how mathematical patterns appear in popular culture.
