Numberphile

I’ve shown you a video or two from these guys before, but here’s a proper post about ’em.

Numberphile puts out videos on their Youtube channel every so often. They focus purely on mathematics, or number types more specifically, so if that’s not your thing then you should just leave right now. If it is, though, you’re in for a ride.

They take all kinds of numbers, or number types, and make videos about them, explaining what they are, what’s so special about them, and so on. Cool thing is, it’s usually not even that hard to follow! It’s fairly understandable to me most of the time, even though I don’t study maths. That’s part of what makes them so fun, you can follow along most of the time, learn new stuff, and feel a lot smarter!
So go and check them out, I’d say. Even if you’re not that interested, maybe something will catch your eye and you’ll be learning about it passionately.

It kind of makes me curious as to what it’s like to study maths, and what career paths you can follow with that. It’s genuinely interesting to me, but I’m not too sure if I could stand doing it as a study, since then it’ll be coming at me day after day, on a much higher level.

I might just look into it though, who knows.

    Cool!
    Let me now how it goes!

    Well you self taught yourself coding really, so you can easily (probably) teach yourself some good maths. I’m not sure where it could lead though, besides being a maths teacher. It seems to lead into the other sciences, such as physics.
