Seeing as how it’s Oscar Sunday, here is an awesome math flavoured movie quiz from Spiked Math.  You can find the solutions here, and if you enjoy this quiz you’ll enjoy Part 2 and Part 3.  For the record, I’m predicting that 12 Years a Slave collects a whole lot of richly deserved Oscar love including Best Picture.

Get you best paper, cut a circle and fold it, fold it so that the circumference falls on a fixed point inside. Repeat, using random folds. Now see the creases. This is how you paper-fold an ellipse.

this is hypnotic…

Conic sections are all connected! A hyperbola is an anti circle, in this case.

Remember, the equation for a circle involves adding x squared and y squared, while the equation for a hyperbola involves subtracting one from the other. The other consequence of this is that is that if you extend the graph of either one to include imaginary and complex x or y values, a hyperbola contains a circle in its empty space, and a circle has a hyperbola surrounding it.

I FOUND THE MATHEMATICIANS!
FRIENDS! FRIENDS!!

Remember that time Gandalf convinced the whole party to flee so that he could take out the Balrog and not have to share any of the XP? Shows up the next session with fancy new robes and everything. What a jerk.

Best literary analysis ever.
