"About the extraordinarily gifted students who represented the United States in 2006 at the world's toughest math competition: the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). It is the story of six American high school students who competed with 500 others from 90 countries in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The film shows the dedication and perseverance of these remarkably talented students, the rigorous preparation they undertake, and the joy they get out of solving challenging problems. It captures the spirit that infuses the mathematical quest at the highest level"Container

15. Careers in mathematics [videorecording] [1998]
 Video
 1 videodisc (26 min.) : sd., col. ; 4 3/4 in.
Contains interviews with mathematicians working in industry, business and government. The purpose of the video is to allow the viewer to hear from people working outside academia what their daytoday work life is like and how their background in mathematics contributes to their ability to do their job. Interviews were conducted on site, showing the work environment and some of the projects mathematicians were contributing to as part of multidisciplinary teams. People interviewed come from industrial based firms such as Kodak and Boeing, business and financial firms such as Price Waterhouse and D.E. Shaw & Co., and government agencies such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Naval Sea System Command.
