Turn arithmetic into mathemagic: Arthur Benjamin at TEDGlobal 2013

🙂

TED Blog

Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin says that there are three reasons we learn math: calculation, application and inspiration. Yes, inspiration.

[ted_talkteaser id=199]Math is the science of patterns, and learning it teaches us not just logic but creative thinking, says Benjamin. So why, when math is beautiful and exciting, is so much of what we learn in school about preparing for tests or passing on to the next grade?

Nature’s own Rorschach blots, clouds often tell us what we’re thinking about. Aristophanes called clouds “the patron goddesses of idle fellows.” Pretor-Pinney reminds us: To tune into the clouds is to calm down, slow down.
