Pixar: The math behind the movies

The folks at Pixar are widely known as some of the world’s best storytellers and animators. They are perhaps less recognized as some of the most innovative math whizzes around. Pixar Research Lead Tony DeRose delves into the math behind the animations, explaining how arithmetic, trigonometry and geometry help bring Woody and the rest of your favorite characters to life.

It’s not exactly shocking that computer animation would involve a lot of math, but it’s so cool to see exactly how they apply it. Don’t ever say math isn’t worth it. Remember: you wouldn’t have your precious Frozen without it.

I’ve found this Gallifreyan Math guide made by Loren Sherman.  Check out this awesome guide here  Gallifreyan Math!

I may not know the first thing about Gallifreyan, but if any of you actually appreciate the fact that this exists, then we should maybe have talked more when I was still teaching.

Why do I learn more about math from Tumblr than my 12+ years of formal education????????

Today was 5/8/13 (in the American style of dates, anyway, which we can argue about another time)!!!! That’s part of the Fibonacci sequence!!! 1…1…2…3…5…8…13…21…
How did you guys almost let me forget this?!?
You guys like pigeons? Here’s some Fibonacci pigeons.
