Something Awesome: Doodling in math class

It seems to be a truth universally acknowledged that girls are bad at math. Of course it’s absolute hogwash if you start examining the actual claim. Regardless, Vi Hart takes that concept and twists and turns it so that it’s almost unrecognizable. Her video series, Doodling in Math Class, explains mathematical concepts like Fibonacci numbers in easily understandable terms with lovely drawings to illustrate the point.

But my absolute favourite thing about Vi Hart’s videos is not the way she teaches the stuff but the way she finds something seemingly boring and makes it a celebration of math an science.

And you know what; all that is more than kind of awesome.
