These 11 short sequences, shot in and around Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona, each display a different aspect of mathematics for pupils to explore, investigate and discuss.

Each sequence poses a question intended to stimulate mathematical discussion rather than to elicit a correct answer to a computation.

The programme is intended to be used in sections, stopping and replaying the video to analyse the information.

It can be shown to pupils on a whiteboard where the pictures can be annotated, or worked on by pupils individually, or in groups on PCs or laptops.

The mathematical content rewards repeated viewing and provides a rich source of mathematical imagery.
