Math in Movies

I found a list of movies that have mathematicians as characters!  Depending on your lesson, snip-its from some might work as an introduction or hook.  

Anytime we can show students that math really does happen in the real world, we have done a good thing!!

Hope you find something useful. :)

Mathematically yours,


  1. Thanks for this! My kids (7th & 8th) love watching movies--even clips. Have you seen this Mathematics in Movies page ( It has the actual clips.

  2. Some streaming channels as a concept would have a smaller, more focused library, they could offer higher royalty rates to new releases, and essentially be a secondary theatrical release platform.
