Mathematics Illuminated is an amazing multimedia resource created by Annenberg Media. It contains text articles, videos, and java applets that discusses mathematics ranging from the most ancient to the most modern. The title of 13 chapters are the following.
- The Primes
- Combinatorics Counts
- How Big is Infinity
- Topology’s Twists and Turns
- Other Dimensions
- The Beauty of Symmetry
- Making Sense of Randomness
- Geometries Beyond Euclid
- Game Theory
- Harmonious Math
- Connecting with Networks
- In Sync
- The Concepts of Chaos
It also contains textbooks, facilitator’s guides, participant’s guides, interactive applets and many other teaching tools that can be used in teaching and learning mathematics.
If you are a mathematics teacher or enthusiast, Mathematics Illuminated is really worth visiting.
This is the second video tutorial on using GeoGebra. This is the video of the article GeoGebra Tutorial 3 – Constructing a Square. Sorry for some grammar lapses (I am not very good in impromptu), and I am really having a hard time imitating American accent to make most of the viewers understand this video. Sometimes my tongue gets twisted — so twisted that it automatically adds “s” to singular nouns (chuckles) like squares instead of square.
Anyway, this is a math blog, so I suppose it is appropriate for us to leave the grammar stuff to language teachers, although you are very much welcome to comment on errors, grammar may it be.
My next video is on Graphs and Sliders, so keep posted.
I created a screencast of the GeoGebra Tutorial 2: Constructing an Equilateral Triangle using Camstudio. I am sorry about the audio, I was in my boarding house when I made that video, so it’s a little noisy.
Note: If you do not know about GeoGebra yet, you should read Introduction to GeoGebra before watching this video.
Errata: 3:24 – 3:25 I said right triangle, it should have been equilateral triangle.
I am going to make a video of some of the tutorials that we have discussed in the GeoGebra Tutorial Series and other software tutorials, so just keep posted.
