European Cinema and Mathematics
This resource available through the Scientix portal gives access to a selection of activities and teaching resources based on movies studied during the Cinemaths Paradise project. The basic purpose is to help teachers to teach maths through movies.
Public Domain Review - Out-of-copyright works
The Public Domain Review is a not-for-profit project dedicated to showcasing the most interesting and unusual out-of-copyright works available online.
All works eventually falling out of copyright (from classic works of art, music and literature, to abandoned drafts, tentative plans, and overlooked fragments)are in the public domain, a vast commons of material that everyone is free to enjoy, share and build upon without restriction.
The Public Domain Review aims to help its readers to explore this rich terrain.
On the website it is possible to find:
- articles from leading scholars, writers, archivists, and artists provide fresh reflections and new angles on old material;
- the possibility to subscribe to the newsletter;
- browse public domain material organised in collections (films, audio, images and texts),
- a guide to finding interesting public domain works.

Mathematics in Movies
This is a collection of movie clips in which Mathematics appears. The movies can be played online, on PC, on iphone/ipad or downloaded to be included into a presentation. The collection was curated by Oliver Knill, Department of Mathematics at Harvard University between March 2006 - July 2011. A fun way to introduce maths...
Learn for example how to calculate 10 times 1000 by watching a funny part of The Full Monty or how to solve the quadratic equation from a math scene in the Fellini movie Amarcord, a movie with a number of delightful school scenes.
