A co-publication of the AMS, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and Mathematical Association of America with funding by the Sloan Foundation
The “Careers in Mathematics” DVD contains interviews with mathematicians working in industry, business and government. The purpose of the DVD is to allow the viewer to hear from people working outside academia what their day-to-day work life is like and how their background in mathematics contributes to their ability to do their job. Interviews were conducted on site, showing the work environment and some of the projects mathematicians contributed to as part of multidisciplinary teams. People interviewed come from industrial based firms such as Kodak and Boeing, business and financial firms such as Price Waterhouse and D. E. Shaw & Co., and government agencies such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Naval Sea system Command.
