Learn Through Videos: Mathematics
This is a collection of links to video lectures and documentary films about mathematics and mathematicians, which are made for a general audience. To read a clock, to buy bus tickets, to check out stats for our favorite players, and to play poker games, we use mathematics knowingly or unknowingly. From simple math to complicated statistics, our everyday lives are surrounded by 'mathematical terms' to count, calculate and measure. Without the help of mathematics, it might be almost impossible to study the shapes and motions of physical objects and to understand the universe. How fundamental mathematics is to our lives! Here are hundreds of videos that explain math concepts in an easy-to-understand way, overview the history of mathematics, and tell the interesting stories about mathematicians, mathematics and its applications.
STEM Concept Videos
The STEM Concept Videos are designed to help students learn a pivotal concept in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM).
History of Mathematics
Professor N. J. Wildberger provides an overview of the history of mathematics, from Greek mathematics to non-Euclidean geometry in the 19th century and modern topology.
Great Mathematicians, Great Mathematics
This is a series of lectures to look at the personality and some of the work of a number of famous mathematicians and then discuss more recent developments and applications.
The Story of Maths
The Story of Maths is a documentary series written and presented by Marcus du Sautoy, outlining aspects of the history of mathematics.
This consists of thirteen lectures exploring major themes in the field of mathematics, from mankind's earliest study of prime numbers to the cutting edge mathematics.
Math is Everywhere
This is a series of six mathematics lectures given by Professor John D. Barrow, investigating the many ways in which mathematics underpins our everyday lives.
Introductory film about the book Euclid's Elements which is made up of thirteen books. And some links to e-books related to Euclid's Elements.
Mathematics from the Visual World
Mathematics from the Visual World consists of 24 lectures taught by Professor Michael Starbird, introducing the terms, concepts, and astonishing power of geometry.
Learning Math: Geometry
This introduces geometric reasoning as a method for problem-solving, with problem-solving activities provided online and in a print guide, and interactive activities and demonstrations on the Web.
Introduction to Number Theory
This consists of twenty-four lectures taught by Professor Edward B. Burger, exploring the world of numbers and showing how number theory is applied to modern technology.
Fermat's Last Theorem
A documentary film about a mathematician who succeeded in proving the Fermat's Last Theorem. Plus a book - Three lectures on Fermat's last theorem.
This is a BBC documentary presented by David Malone, looking at four brilliant mathematicians - Georg Cantor, Ludwig Boltzmann, Kurt Godel and Alan Turing.
The Joy of Stats
Presented by Hans Rosling, this takes viewers on a rollercoaster ride through the wonderful world of statistics to explore the remarkable power they have to change our understanding of the world.
Against All Odds: Inside Statistics
Picking up where the original Against All Odds left off, the new series maintains the same emphasis on "doing" statistics. Each unit is based on a video module that introduces a statistical topic in real-world context.
Learning Math: Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability
This introduces statistics as a problem-solving process. You can build your skills through investigations of different ways to collect and represent data, and describe and analyze variation in data.
