Math Doodling

Doodling — it’s usually a sign of boredom, an escape from tedium. Vi Hart turns it all upside down, and shows how doodling can be an engaging form of pedagogy. On her web site, you will find other math doodling videos called StarsSnakes + GraphsBinary TreesSick Number Games and Squiggle Inception. The video above is called Infinity Elephants. Thanks Kim for sending this our way….

    Hi Dan-just wanted to send a big Shout Out to you and your cohorts for all the amazing, fantastic stuff you guys post. I am the librarian at a boys’school in Pretoria, South Africa and Open Culture is No. 1 in my RSS Feed box and my first port of call every morning at work. Generally you guys post material that is precisely what I am looking for to help teachers jazz up their lessons. This post on Math doodling is exactly what I am looking for-helping to see an old subject from a fresh, somewhat unorthodox perspective. My music teachers loved the Thelonius Monk, I loved the Paul Simon, I still have to show my art teacher the clips on Ai Weiwei but i am sure she will be impressed. Your work is a vital part of my school…it has not only helped to enrich our teaching experience but more importantly (IMHO) has helped to expand it in unusual and thought-provoking ways. Please keep up the good work. You Guys Rock! Take care, Andrew
