Movies as a tool for improving our classes


Luis J Rodríguez-Muñiz (Spain)


Cinema and TV series can be a helpful tool to improve some of the aspects in Statistics classes. Motivation is an obvious point to reinforce by using movies scenes, especially those in which we can find applications of the topics to be taught in class. Also we can use specific scenes to make clearer some notions or ideas in the class. Thinking in a University level, we can find some of the fore mentioned scenes in a small number of films and a few TV series. In this communication we state our ideas about how to use movies to improve our classes and we illustrate them with some concrete examples of scenes which can be used in a University-level class.
