Mathematics goes Viral!
Everyone has a different learning style. Some of us learn by doing, while others learn by observing or watching videos on YouTube (our preference)! This blog post is all about the great YouTube channels that celebrate mathematics while giving YOU the opportunity to learn, and be entertained.
Here are a few of the channels we recommend and support in our quest of mathematics education…
Not to toot our own horn, but MathCON’s YouTube series Math with Ayhan is a great channel to practice and learn math online! The series is designed to engage middle schoolers and high schoolers with a new question and solution presented each week by MathCON’s very own mathematician, Ayhan, solving the problems. Ayhan leaves a cliffhanger each week so that you must come back the following Friday to get the answer! Stay tuned for special episodes with guest stars too!
Numberphile is one of our favorite channels to learn about, well, numbers! While you might not see many of the mathematics discussed on the channel on your math exam, you will learn a lot about how numbers underly so much of our existence. If you enjoy math and having your mind blown with crazy number facts, this is a great channel for you to check out!
Math is exciting already, but what about animated math? 3Blue1Brown is a YouTube channel that animates math that is interesting, thought-provoking and often beautiful. If you want to learn about math that isn’t something you will learn in school, this is a great channel to broaden your math horizons. If you want to learn a commonly taught subject (like those on the MathCON test), there are videos dedicated to those as well! 3Blue1Brown is a great channel to learn more about math that you can use in the classroom and beyond.
This YouTube channel is a great resource for students of all ages. The goal of the challenge is to “provide simple and engaging math resources that make learning math more fun.” The math lessons on this YouTube channel are very visual and make learning new concepts fun and easy.
Thanks for tuning in, and don’t forget to Subscribe to our YouTube channel, Math with Ayhan!
