Plimpton 322: The Ancient Roots of Modern Mathematics is a half-hour documentary film designed to enthuse university and high school students, especially minority students, to pursue mathematical studies. With New York City as backdrop, the film takes viewers on a tour of our mathematical debt to ancient cultures in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. We witness their ideas still playing crucial roles in our society and 21st-century technology. At the center of the film is a 4,000-year-old cuneiform tablet known as Plimpton 322, which was excavated in Iraq around 1920 and now has its home in New York.
The film is freely available for viewing at http://faculty.baruch.cuny.edu/lkirby/.
