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
