Mathematical Monday: Movie Title Math

I found this originally on Geeks Are Sexy and thought that it was the perfect intersection of movie geeks, logic geeks, and math geeks. Since I’m most of the above (my husband is a bigger movie geek than me, but that means I still watch a lot of movies with him), I definitely enjoyed these and I thought you would too!

Here’s the original on Spiked Math. Oh, and there are two more:

Part 2

Part 3

So, can you get them? The only issue here is that I couldn’t find an actual answer key, but if you pop into the comments, there are plenty of great options!

Got any other ideas? I was trying to come up with something for Walk the Line, like a function from x+1 to infinity for the equation ax+c = y (like stepping up a line, get it!). Anyway. Lots of math, logic, and movie fun!

    Those are pretty clever!

    Now I’m scrolling through movie lists trying to think of one. My only idea so far is Network; maybe you could write out an equation for the net work done on something…
