The mathematics of sidewalk illusions – Fumiko Futamura

If you’re ever walking down the street and come across an oddly stretched out image, like this, you’ll have an opportunity to see something remarkable, but only if you stand in exactly the right spot. That happens because these works employ a technique called anamorphosis. Anamorphosis is a special case of perspective art, where artists […]

Basic Calculations in Mathematics : How to Calculate Percentiles

Basic Calculations in Mathematics : How to Calculate Percentiles

In this clip, we’re going to find out how to calculate percentiles. We’ll start with the simple examples. And there’s other ways of calculating. But this is the most simpler. Let’s say you these, one, two, three, four, five numbers. And you want to calculate the twentieth percentile. This is what you do. You count […]

The mathematics of love | Hannah Fry

Today I want to talk to you about the mathematics of love. Now, I think that we can all agree that mathematicians are famously excellent at finding love. (Laughter) But it’s not just because of our dashing personalities, superior conversational skills and excellent pencil cases. It’s also because we’ve actually done an awful lot of […]

Multiplication and Division Word Problems

Multiplication and Division Word Problems

Hi, you’ve already learned how to do some word problems using addition and subtraction. Now, it’s time to learn how to use multiplication and division in word problems. Just like other word problems, these problems tell a story. The math problem is part of our story. In this video, all of the word problems we […]

Applied Dance + Inspired Mathematics

The topic of this performance, which is my area of research, is topology, which is the science of shape — what is the broad shape of an object, what is its intrinsic nature? Mathematically we’re just studying the shape of continuous loops in space. Here are these unlikely, you know, collaborators both advancing each other’s […]

A Review: Mathematical Curiosities

Hello, everybody! Today I’m going to review this packet of mathematical tricks. Now, I bought this about a year ago in a shop called Hawkin’s Bazaar.. It’s one of my favorite shops. Now that’s probably advertising, but screw it! No one watches these things, anyway. It is one of my favorite shops. It’s full of […]
