As the title says…

Do watch it all the way through - it’s not long and ends nicely.



Vi Hart is great fun to watch and obviously a gifted communicator. Her thanksgiving dinner math-i-fied, for example, is really funny. The Fibonacci series is also fun. A bit hard to know what age group these are for - probably a minimum cut-off rather than an upper limit since new learning is always possible and if you know the content you can sit back and enjoy the presentation.

Cool

Thanks. I enjoyed that.



A lot going on that we take for granted.

Imagine when you multiply all that by FIVE senses at once.

BRAVO! =D>

…and thanks.

I thought the way she ended it was surprisingly beautiful and understated. Caught me off guard the first time I saw it. Smarts and soul operating there.

Yes, a very good illustration of symmetry and function.



Vi Hart is American, and now that I think about it, I realise your flag is a bit of a let-down for her and the above geometry enthusiast’s purposes. The Canuck flag is pretty good for its suggestion of imminent biological and mathematical possibilities. Less so the flag of Japan.
