# Friday math movie - Bass guitar design

By Murray Bourne, 07 Nov 2008

The Futures Channel has the motto "Connecting learning to the real world".

There is a series of videos covering real-world applications of math and science topics such as:

• algebra
• mathematics
• problem solving
• science & technology

Under the "problem solving" heading, I found an overview on the math behind building bass guitars, but unfortunately it has since disappeared.

The Futures Channel also has video resources categorized under the following headings:

• animals
• art & music
• design & architecture
• environment
• living & working in space

Well worth a visit: The Futures Channel.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
