8 Youtube Channels for Learning Mathematics

1. 3blue1brown 

3blue1brown contains in-depth discussions of varied topics in mathematics and computer science accompanied by stunning animations. 

Some of the notable series that I have already watched are Essence of Linear Algebra and Essence of Calculus. What is interesting is that the programming language used to build the animation in this channel was created by Grant Sanderson, the channel’s creator himself.

2. Professor Leonard

Professor Leonard is ideal for High School and College students who want to self-study mathematics. The channel has full length lectures of actual classes in Algebra, Precalculus, Statistics, and Calculus 1-3. He has recently finished publishing full video lectures on Differential Equations.

3. Numberphile

Numberphile started as a channel discusses facts about numbers. It has since expanded discussing topics in a wide variety of fields of mathematics. This channel has successfully explained many difficult topics in layman’s. 

4. Khan Academy

Khan Academy contains thousands of videos from Grade School to University Mathematics. The channel includes tutorials on Basic Math, Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus 1-3, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations. Aside from mathematics, it also covers other areas such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Arts and Humanities, and Reading and Language Arts. It also contains practice exercises. 

5. MyWhyU

MyWhyU has animated tutorials with in-depth discussions about algebraic rules. What is unique about it is that it combines discussion of procedures with an in-depth discussion about the concept behind the procedures and its extensions. 

6. Patrick JMT

Patrick JMT contains short to-the-point video tutorials for specific topics. This channel is ideal if you are reviewing for examinations. 

7. Bill Kinney

Just like Prof Leonard, Professor Kinney is a channel that contains many actual class lectures. This channel discusses a wide variety of University Mathematics. This includes Calculus 1 and 2, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Differential Equations, and many more. There are also some tutorials on Mathematica.

8. MIT Courseware

MIT Courseware contains hundreds of undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics, the sciences, and other fields. Many of the courses contain syllabi, complete video lectures, notes, reading lists, and assignments with solutions.

I have moved to a new server

Hi everyone. I want you to know that I’m still alive (lol) despite being inactive for a few months. I have also moved to a new server and sadly I have lost all the comments and I don’t know if I could still recover them.

Also, the new server which is supposed to be an upgrade has also been erratic. From time to time, the site goes offline and receiving an Error 503 or 504. Anyway, hopefully, It will improve over time.

Anyway, I’m wishing everyone a Happy New Year (I know it’s a bit late) and hopefully I can be more active this year,

Be safe.

I’m Still an Active GeoGebra User

GeoGebra has improved a lot since I was first acquainted with it in 2006. For the subscribers of this blog, you have probably come across my series of tutorials on how to use the app. In recent years, GeoGebra has evolved into several apps that can be used for specific tasks. It has also become compatible with major operating systems including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. The different GeoGebra apps are the following:

  • Scientific Calculator
  • Graphing Calculator
  • Geometry
  • 3D
  • CAS
  • Classic

The Classic has two versions and is the most comprehensive among the apps. The 3D app has also support from Augmented Reality. In addition, one of the recent updates of GeoGebra is its support for examinations.  

My Current Work on GeoGebra

Personally, I have been involved in developing applets and lessons for the GeoGebra Institute in my country (see example below). You can view my applets at the official GeoGebra website and some short videos demonstrating the capabilities of GeoGebra at our GeoGebra Institute Facebook page. The official website of our GeoGebra Institute is currently being updated here and hopefully, we can upload lessons that are readily available for teachers soon.

At the Institute where I work, we have also integrated GeoGebra in several of our teacher trainings. Last year, we have obtained funding to train potential trainers. The project includes developing a module for future trainers and a 2-phase training.  The training was supposed to be start in April but was postponed due to the current pandemic.

Some Resource on GeoGebra

There are so many tutorials if you want to learn GeoGebra. You can see my tutorials here or read the GeoGebra Manual. As for the applets, there are millions of applets uploaded in the GeoGebra website. Some of the excellent GeoGebraists are Daniel Mentrard, Tim Bzherzhinski. The GeoGebra Institute of Bogota is also very active.
