A Beautiful Mind
Film, Beautiful Mind
Clever mathematicians, maths drives him insane.
Show's complexity of subject
Film: A Beautiful Mind
A film about parts of his life (dramaticised)
Very respectful of his ability yet not envious since his intellect classed him as not
John Nash (?) A beautiful mind
weird socially awkward (& skitz !) but nice person
strengthened a stereotype
The film "A Beautiful Mind" - rented on dvd.
It was about a clever mathematician who went a bit crazy trying to crack codes.
I enjoyed it a lot.

Good film and interesting
Beautiful Mind – on TV
Crazy mathematician
I like how good at maths he was but he was too bonkers
The guy in A Beautiful Mind
He was schizophrenic
It was a good film. I considered pretending to talk to imaginary people in tutes to
freak my tutor out.
Film “A Beautiful Mind” (first seen by me when shown on TV, I think)
Film is a (semi-) biography of the mathematician John Nash; it charts his life from his
early twenties until the present day, focusing on his struggle against Schizophrenia;
most of the maths mentioned is concerned with economics
(for which JN won the Nobel Prize) or cryptography (the film is mostly set during the
Cold War)
poignant; it gives quite a good insight into research mathematics as I understand it,
though focussing on only a small part; (the film suggests that Nash’s Schizophrenia
was brought on by his involvement in government code-breaking, whereas there is
some consensus, I think, that it was more linked to his efforts to prove the Riemann
The film A Beautiful Mind – at home on TV
John Nash’s eccentricities
It focused way too much on his mental illness as opposed to his maths
Nash, in the film A Beautiful Life
He is desperate for maths and can sacrifice for it
I think we have to make a good balance between maths and other aspects
The film 'A Beautiful Mind'.
... I remember most of it...
A good film. However, it's a shame that so many films depict mathematicians who are
in some way pitiable.
the film "a beautiful mind" was about a mathemetician, and i saw it in the cimema 4
years ago.
Describe the main things that you remember about it:
it was a film about a fields medalist
it was a good film

the pecularities about being a genius
maths was being too popularised

Early fame followed by insanity - why never any movies about STABLE creative
It was gripping and beautiful, though a bit much insanity. On the whole sympathetic
to Nash though
A Beautiful Mind (Cinema)
Excellent story acting by Russell Crowe (sic). Amazing that it was based on a true

of the trancendental number PI. He gets all paranoid, then opts for power drilling into
the side of his head after which you see him chilling on a bench without the worry of
maths and all that nonsense clogging up his head.
I feel it demonstrates how maths can be a bit pointless and there is more to life than
numbers… Enjoy the beauty of the earth instead.

General comments
Have heard about films like "A Beautiful Mind" and "Good Will Hunting" where people
are exceptionally determined, and TV documentaries.
Film about people who can do really long multiplications and calculations in their
head very quickly. Even films like Matilda.
I think to have this kind of ability is amazing. But not when people brag. Everyone
has something they're good at, good for you if its something like maths.
I hear about maths in every day life in films etc.
Not what film or TV program I heard it from.
You need maths in life for everything, so it didn't bother me.
Cinema ticket prices.
If you cannot count the money you cannot pay the correct amount.
No feelings or opinions.
Cinema with the prices.
Someone adding up the total on the cash register.
Didn't have any.
Films, I have seen film storylines closely related to maths
I remember the Mathematicians being pretty cool and not the geeks you thought they
might be.
I felt this was a good way to posting them as it provides a good image for Maths and
In sci - fi films on TV.
That most terms used were Mathematical to show scientific discovery.
I did not really have any opinions or feelings about it.
Action movies
That Maths helps work out satistic questions.
The curious incident of the dog in the night-time
Books - 'Curious Incident of the dog in the night time' - about a boy with autism, uses
maths a lot. 'Bible Code' used maths to decipher codes
Books interesting to view other peoples opinions on maths.
Books - The mystery of the dog in the night.
Used a lot of number sequences e.g. prime numbers child was autistic.
I thought it was very good and well constructed.
In a book "Curious incident of the dog in the nighttime", Puzzles, Puzzle book,
Sudoku etc.
The book about an autistic boy, who does a lot of maths, and includes & series of
very complex mathematical puzzles. Puzzles were fun to do and very addictive.
The book was sad, but the puzzles were extremely complex maths, that I could not
comprehend. Was addictive to the puzzles and found thorn very interesting.

Book - The curious incident of the dog in the night time.
The theory the boy had were extremely complicated many of my maths teachers
couldn't work them out.
2. I enjoyed "The dog in the night time", as it showed how same artistic people feel
and what goes an in their minds. It gave a real insight into the life and mind of an
artistic person.
Book "The incident of the dog in the right time" can't remember the name.
The main character solving a lot of problems.
Curious incident of the dog in the night time.
Some aspects as the documentary.How the pattens in maths were comforting for
him. He felt the need for routine and regularity, whilst finding numbers easier to deal
with than people.
I found it an extremely interesting insight into the way other people's minds work. It
made me appreciate different perspectives.
Book - The curious incident of the dog in the night time. I read it.
In the book, the main character was autistic so he was really good at maths. He
would describe Maths problems and their solutions at A-level standard.
I thought it was good because it added to the authenticity of the book in describing
the boy's condition but the problems were too advanced for me to understand.
Book- The curious incident of the dog in the nighttime.
Had lots of maths problems in it that the character in the book used to help him in
everyday life.
Quite interesting, seeing life from a different point of view.

Really interesting, page turning book.
It seemed to provide a hint of what further study of maths could lead to (not that I'm
likely to become a famous mathematician!)
Fermat. Book on fermats last theorem by simon singh (?)
portrayed fermat as pretty arrogant
again strengthens stereotype
Fermat's last theorem by Simon Singh, a book
The book showed unknow but interesting facts from both history of maths and lifes of
famous mathematicians

Mental arithmetic on “Countdown” (Channel 4)
Countdown is a daytime letters/numbers game, including 3 rounds of mental
arithmetic (trying to form a random number from a given set); contestants have 30
seconds per round, and are very often successful- if not Carol Voderman (presenter)
generally is.
The show is entertaining in a way, the maths not very taxing; it slightly annoys me
that people seem to think (and many in fact say on the programme, if asked) that
“arithmetic is what maths is all about”, which is a big underestimation of such an
important subject.

Stress, unable to watch it, inadequate maths

through the natural numbers, and the Riemann Hypothesis was also mentioned.
There was a comparison of the distribution of the primes with the frequency of
