I find this series very useful for students who need a different way to think about Math. The visual that is described and repetition of examples during the podcast are extremely helpful and go beyond memorization. Thanks, Math Dude!
A first-rate introduction to math for the non-math major
The Math Dude podcasts seem like a great way to learn about math for those of us who aren't mathematically inclined. After listening to the first few episodes, I've got a new visual way to think about numbers and basic arithmetic. I look forward to seeing where he'll go from here and i'm definitely making this one of my subscriptions.
Great Podcast, even for Math Phobes
Math Dude has a way of making math seem not only do-able, but fun--by helping listeners see the connection between every day tasks like making a pizza and doing, well, math. His pod personality is laid-back and encouraging, and his content is perfect for anyone who wants to brush up on their numerical literacy, or for kids struggling with math in school (great breakfast listening before first-period Algebra!).
