The Beauty of Mathematics: A Visual Demonstration of Math in Everyday Life



The Beauty of Mathematics: A Visual Demonstration of Math in Everyday Life 1

This lovely video short from and Nicolas Lefaucheux of Paris video production agency Parachutes succinctly demonstrates the underlying mathematics behind everyday occurrences in the format of a triptych. On the left we see the mathematical equation, in the middle a mathematical model, and on the right a video of such things as snowflakes, wind, sound, trees and magnetism. The video begins with the following quote: “Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music.” —Bertrand Russell Best viewed full screen.
