This wonderful list of talks specifically curated for those who used to hate math when they were students. Contrary to the stereotypical picture of math as a boring and dry school subject, these talks portray the inspiring and cool aspect of mathematics. For instance, mathematician Hannah Fry shared her math-verified tips on finding the right mate. Terry Moore delves deep into the mysterious and funny story behind the use of X as a symbol for an unknown. Cartoonist Randall Munroe seeks answers to simple what if questions using logic, math and physics while “mathematician mathemagician Arthur Benjamin races a team of calculators to figure out 3-digit squares, solves another massive mental equation and guesses a few birthdays.” Check out the talks below to learn more. Enjoy
