Vi Hart – maths the way it is supposed to be

I would like to point your attention to a modern day hero, a self-appointed mathemusician.

Vi Hart (I think that is her actual name) is a composer and mathematician, who makes short videos explaining math concepts. The videos are playful, associative and very different from regular (boring) math tuition. Brilliantly illustrating maths the way it is supposed to be Рintuitive, coherent and useful.

 

Even those who have been at it for a while should take a look and be reminded why you were fascinated by mathematics in the first place.

 

I will be using her videos shamelessly in my own math teaching (which might start next week already, as I’ve been asked to step in. Oh yosh, am I ready for this?).

Now, shoosh. http://vihart.com/everything/
