There are many different ways to explore the world’s largest campus – on foot, via bicycle, even horseback. But unicycle? Student Noah Syverson recently won a third-place national award at the Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts for “A Wheel, a Trail, and a Student: The Story of Berry’s Mountain Unicyclist,” chronicling the one-wheeled adventures of fellow student John Patten Moss. Don’t believe us? Watch the video and see for yourself.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that Professor of Mathematics Eric McDowell will do anything in the name of education. Fresh off a second-place national award for a previous collaboration with students working for Berry’s Viking Fusion multimedia website, McDowell is at it again – this time putting an animated spin on the 17th-century Calculus Priority Dispute between Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. We’ll let McDowell and student producers Josy Roman and Michael Baldvins take it from here. Enjoy!

Dr. Eric McDowell’s zeal to bring a little musical flair to mathematics education has resulted in a second-place national award from the Broadcast Education Association for his latest ditty, Roll Call. Following on the heels of earlier productions Mr. Math Man and Derivative Rag, this video once again features the Berry faculty member bursting into song, this time presenting the names of famous mathematicians to the tune of Gilbert and Sullivan’s I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General from The Pirates of Penzance. Production credits for the award-winning video go to sophomore Josy Roman. This is Dr. McDowell’s fourth collaboration with Viking Fusion, Berry’s student-run multimedia website.
