**Discovering Math: **Mathematics is based on standard concepts and principals discovered centuries ago, but mathematical applications in the world today are infinite. In this video, explore how new strands of traditional mathematical branches are being continually developed to aid scientists, musicians, fashion designers, doctors, meteorologists, cryptologists, and more. Mathematics solves real-world problems and creates new standards in many fields of study.

**A Gift for Math: **Endowed with an elementary representation mechanism, the human brain is naturally predisposed toward mathematics. This program seeks to understand the biological basis of humankind’s "gift for math"—and why, beyond that baseline computational ability, some people are capable of scaling the highest peaks of mathematical comprehension. Experiments with animals, studies of very young children, cases involving patients with brain injuries, and analysis of brain imaging data are included. (52 minutes)

- Just the Facts: Math Facts SeriesThis playlist is four videos that cover the ways in which mathematics and geometry have developed over the time and the influence that these subjects have had on our civilization. Two 2-part series, 22-26 minutes each.
- The Story of Math SeriesWithout mathematics, there would be no physics, chemistry, or astronomy. No architecture. No commerce. No accurate maps or precise time-keeping, therefore no dependable long-range navigation. No geometry, statistics, or calculations of any kind. No computers. In this landmark four-part series, University of Oxford Professor Marcus du Sautoy takes viewers on a journey through the ages and around the world to trace the development of mathematics and see how math has shaped human civilization. Clear explanations of important mathematical ideas supported by anecdotes and pivotal episodes in the lives of great mathematicians make this series as entertaining as it is enlightening. Original Open University title: The Story of Maths. 4-part series, 57-59 minutes each.
