We are putting together a collective video for the first official International Day of Mathematics centered on this year’s topic Mathematics is Everywhere. Clips from all over the world (including yours!) will illustrate the various places where math can be found.
The final video, made up from the best submissions received, will be presented at the IDM launch event at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, at the African launch in the Next Einstein Forum 2020 and shared online.
Record a short video (15 seconds or less) where you show something that people might not realize is interesting mathematically: something from nature, a human activity, art, a game, a building, bridge or construction, an interesting landmark from your city, etc.
"Mathematics is in ____"
completing the sentence with your chosen example.
That should be the only spoken text in the video.
Speak in your language! We hope to show many languages from all over the world.
Use a paper sign, drawing, diagram, formula, animation, blackboard, or whatever
you can come up with to show a little bit of the mathematics, reveal or illuminate why
what you're showing has mathematics behind it.
Watch the video above to see some examples!
Collaborate with your friends, colleagues or students in your video. Also help us spread the word by sharing this page with your local math community and network.
You can also check out our Mathematics is Everywhere website for more inspiration.
You have time to send us your video until February 21, 2020.
Upload your video file to a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud Drive or any other which allows us to download your file through a link without signing up. You can also use your own web server if you have one and know how. Don't send us links to video services like YouTube because we may not be able to download the video from them.Submit your video
