Maths in the Movies
"The Commitments" page 1
This is a good open-ended project which takes the students by surprise the first time they read the problem. Many are not sure how to start the problem.
It is most suited for Year 10 and 11 students after they have learned about circles.
The open-ended part of the project shows students that maths isn't always as exact as they might think.
The clip occurs about halfway through the movie, just as someone is turning off the lights of a large pool hall.
