Exhibit: Calculus and Linear algebra in the Movie Thinning

In the movie "The Thinning", students have to make a test every year (on an applet) and the last few get "thinned out"=executed. There appears a bit of calculus and linear algebra: the product rule and a linear equations appear. There is also a lense which solves the math in real time.
