The Story of 1
10:30 am – 11:30 am
Terry Jones (Monty Python’s Flying Circus) goes on a humor-filled journey to recount the amazing tale behind the world’s simplest number. The Story of 1 reveals how civilizations used One to develop their culture; where our modern numbers came from; and how the invention of zero changed the world forever. (2006, 60 min.; NR probably G)
The Code, episode 1: Numbers
11:30 am – 12:30 pm
What do the precise proportions of Chartres Cathedral have in common with the life cycle of the lowly cicada, with how we hear sound, and with the intricately designed shell of a small marine animal called a nautilus? In their work on the great gothic cathedrals, medieval masons had glimpsed a deep truth they believed echoed God’s creation. Host Marcus Du Sautoy identifies the key to understanding the universe in their sacred numbers and, in examples ancient and modern, the amazing power of pi.
Donald in Mathmagic Land
12:30 pm – 1:00 pm
In search of big game, hunter Donald Duck stumbles into a strange and wondrous land dominated by numbers. He soon learns, despite his dismissive attitude, that math can be found in beautiful and often surprising ways. This hidden world reveals itself to Donald through music, architecture, sculpture, biology, and sports. Oscar-nominated documentary.(1959, 27 min.; NR probably G)
The Code, episode 2: Shapes
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Professor Marcus de Sautoy travels to the Giant’s Causeway, the amazing collection of hexagonal basalt columns off the coast of Northern Ireland. Folklore explains this geological formation in a tale involving a local giant eager to get to grips with a Scottish rival 80 miles away across the Irish Sea. But Du Sautoy finds written into these rocks a fundamental truth about the universe – a hidden geometric force that underpins all nature, from the structure of honeycombs, soap bubbles, and salt crystals to the work of visionary painter Jackson Pollock and the virtual worlds of Pixar movies.
The Story of Math, episode 1: The Language of the Universe
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Traveling from Mesopotamia to Egypt and then to Greece, host Marcus Du Sautoy shows how mathematics evolved from a practical problem-solver for weights and measures to a truly conceptual science.
