Title:Math Morsels from the Big and Small Screen

Abstract: Movies and television are a big part of peoples’ lives. We may watch to get away from studying, but just as mathematics is a part of life, sometimes it's a part of a movie. How do you react when you find a bit of mathematics suddenly appear on the screen? Perhaps the mathematics is integral to the plot, maybe a side-note, or it’s only in the background. When I unexpectedly find mathematics on the screen, I find great joy (this is math I know!) or curiosity (this is math I don’t know, I want to learn more! Leads to more joy!). I will share some gems that have crossed my path on my journey as a mathematician that spark joy for me.
