As an electrical engineering student, we dive pretty deep into mathematics. This show is a great refresher to reinforce that basic understanding of math which all the advance stuff is, and always will be, based on. The host keeps the topic interesting with great real world examples, and doesn't complicate things for people trying to learn. Overall it's a great idea and very educational show. 5 stars for me.
Great for math students
Great approach to math for those nervous about the topic. Host sounds young and approchable. Uses easy to understand examples that translate instantly into the average teen's life. Great use of supporting technologies with links to social media sites. Hits all of the marks for teaching frightening math-stuff and making sure you understand why you are doing what you doing. Great resource if you need some tutoring or math help but don't know where to start.
Recaps the basics
Great to review the basics and pick up helpful tips along the way. Thank you!
