"Mathematics: The Key to a Hidden World" with YouTuber Eddie Woo
Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 2-3pm US Pacific Time
Author and YouTuber Eddie Woo presented "Mathematics, The Key to a Hidden World" on Tuesday, September 21, a free, interactive event geared at middle and high school students as well as adults.
Do we really need to learn about mathematics in our modern world? We all carry calculators around in our pockets and so much of what we're taught in school mathematics can seem irrelevant to our lives. However, the reason we learn mathematics is not just to solve problems. It's to unlock a world hiding in plain sight, to enable us to appreciate its patterns and navigate its secrets. In this session we'll explore some of those secrets and see how mathematics helps us to wonder at the world we live in.
This event for ages 11+ was presented by the National Math Festival and the Mathical Book Prize (opens new window).
