# Mathematical Moments - a great resource

By Murray Bourne, 13 Dec 2006

The American Mathematical Society has produced an interesting set of posters that depict the many uses of mathematics in "real life". The series is called Mathematical Moments.

There are around 50 topics, including:

**Math in the Movies** (about CGI effects)

They have supplied "short versions" as well, with less verbiage and larger pictures.

The disappointment for me is that the photos are quite pixelated. When you print them in A4 size (US Letter), they are not very attractive. There is one poster (Enhancing your Image) about image improvement and at least that poster has reasonable image quality.
