The Maths Behind Pixar.
I was looking at www.literacyshed.com when I saw @ICT_MrP excellent article and video about ideas you can use in the classroom based around the Pixar films. Well this isn't strictly confined to Literacy as animation is driven by mathematical equations. These videos would be great to show students as a starting point looking at maths around us, or for any budding animators that may need persuading on how important maths is for their future careers. Enjoy.
