I’ve been searching lately for videos on introduction to higher mathematics and I found one series which is particularly easy to follow and with excellent explanation. The video series is titled Introduction to Higher Mathematics by Bill Shillito. The series discusses the topics like logic, set theory, relations and functions, modular arithmetic, etc. which are needed before taking a mathematics course. I have already watched seven of these videos and I highly recommend them especially for Grade 12 and undergraduate students who are planning to take or already taking mathematics and computer science courses and related fields.
Below are the titles of the videos in the series.. Continue reading
I am currently on vacation and have no time to write, but I remember watching the video below years ago after sharing 3 Rules to Spark Learning last month. This video was a lecture by Sir Ken Robinson at TED titled How School Kills Creativity. I think it is a must watch for teachers, educators, and policy makers in education.
My favorite quote in this video: “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original.”
He also had a great lecture titled Changing Education Paradigms.
Mathematics is used in almost all fields: engineering, health, in movies and animation, weather, biology, history, or even on super simple things like scientifically cutting a cake. However, this lecture about the Universal Hot Crazy Matrix will completely change your perception about mathematics. Watch this video and see how mathematics, particularly graphs, can be used to find a wife.
Remember, do not choose the area above the 8 hot axis and below the unicorn area.
Enjoy and have fun.
