Pixar in a Box: a Matrimony of Mathematics and Movies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will be repeated on Sunday, 8:30 to 9:45. Are you a math and Disney fanatic like I am and want to learn how to incorporate movies into your CPM classroom? If so, join me in this session to learn about Pixar in a Box! Come get a behind the scenes look at how Pixar artists created the movies we all love such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo. This collaboration between Pixar and Khan Academy allows students to use math and computer science to animate bouncing balls, build swarms of robots, and make virtual fireworks explode.
