Mathematics From the Visual WorldDVD - 2009
Presents lectures (each 30 minutes in length) by Michael Starbird, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin. Presents a collection of topics that reveal the rich, wondrous structure of what we see around us. Patterns in nature are the source of our geometrical understanding of the world. Abstracting those patterns leads to concepts from classical geometry. Extensions of those and other ideas of form have created a landscape of mathematical ideas, including Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometries, symmetry groups, and graph theory.
