Re: Infinity Elephants
Well there's no deep point being made in this particular video. It's just that some doodling games are an examples of some very interesting mathematical results. Perhaps the overall point of the series of videos is that the subject of math is far more interesting than whatever boring drab is taught in math classes. Very intricate mathematical results can even be gleamed just by reflecting on your bored doodlings. She seems to be against our current methods of math education. I agree. What they teach in math classes these days isn't how to do math. Memorization of some forumlae is not the same thing as knowing how to do math. And we should be teaching students how to do math not mere memorization of forumlae. Maybe this is why you barely passed the dumbass math class. It's probably because you were bored out of your mind and didn't see how it really applied to anything, so you didn't put in any effort in to what you saw as pointless. Just another example of our education system failing us.

Then again, there's the alternate problem with people that do see the value in math while refusing to acknowledge any liberal arts material. Also known as: "Your writing sucks, smacktard. You have one more chance to not embarrass yourself."
