Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz, screenwriter Stan Chervin, and Washington Nationals mathematician Lee Mendelowitz to discuss the movie Moneyball. Moneyball tells the story of baseball executive Billy Beane and a young Yale economics grad named Peter Brand, who has ambitious and untested ideas about how best to build a team. With Brand's help, Beane vows to turn the Oakland A's around using stats, models, and other predictive methods once unheard of in professional sports.
Stan wrote the story for Moneyball, which earned Best Screenplay nominations at the Academy Awards and Golden Globes, and Lee is the Senior Director of Research and Development for the Washington Nationals, the 2019 World Series champions.
Please watch Moneyball at your leisure in the days leading up to the event. Subscribers to Netflix and Hulu can stream the film for free. If you don't subscribe to either of those, you can rent the film for $2.99 from Amazon Prime or Vudu.
Though viewing each film is not required for participation, it is suggested that participants stream the movies independently prior to the event.
Please note that this is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
