    Here's a lady that talks really fast about stuff and doodles stuff in a notebook and it has to do with math and it's fun. This is one of her videos.



    And I agree with her completely (especially on the language teaching/learning bit [​IMG] ).

    Also, this:

    I saw this a few days ago after watching a vlogbrother vid where they recomended her.
    Her mobius strip videos are quite nifty too.

    That quote was from <a href="http://www.maa.org/devlin/LockhartsLament.pdf" target="_blank">A Mathematician's Lament by Paul Lockhart</a>

    I'd definitely recommend reading it, here are some more quotes:

    While I have seen a great many videos* on this and similar subjects these last few years (and probably before that as well) I shall certain add "+1" to what came before me in this thread.
    * http://www.ted.com/talks/tags/id/70/page/7 probably being as good a start as any.

    My personal favourite boredom type activity- trying to wedge/connect two or more unconnected (at least in my head at this point in time) areas of science/maths together.

    Looking at all this it seems I was somewhat fortunate- while I recognise most of the things being mentioned in this thread it seems I was for the most part shielded from it all (proud would perhaps be the wrong word but it certainly causes no concern that to this day I do not know times tables and for that matter never have done). What I truly detest though is having to think in a curriculum- "is this method allowed?" (something that often appears when helping others with revising), "there is a far "simpler" method but I have to use this one", being told "you can not solve this..... yet*" and so forth.

    *quadratic equations before imaginary/complex numbers "appear" would be a good example.

    I never laughed so hard at a missed possible joke reference.
