Description

Often described as the science of patterns, mathematics is arguably humanity’s most penetrating mental framework for uncovering the hidden patterns that lie behind everything we see, feel, and experience. Galileo described mathematics as the language in which the laws of the universe are written. Intended to give a broad overview of the field, these five illustrated lectures look at counting and arithmetic, shape and geometry, motion and calculus, and chance and probability, and end with a mind-stretching trip to infinity.

Eye OPENING!

Great little lectures that rip away established dogma on certain mathematical topics and provide true facts & insights for those interested in math, history, & humanities.

Only one complaint...

... the course is too short. We are given a brief look at how mathematics was "developed" and insights into some of it's branches. It would be interesting to see more of the history in future lectures. Also, I will forever refer to Fibonacci as Leonardo Pisano filius Bonacci from this point forward. :)
