    Demonstrating the beauty of maths and science: Roger Antonsen at TEDxKrakow

    16:19

    Roger Antonsen received his PhD in computer science in 2008, in the field of logic, proof theory and automated reasoning, from the University of Oslo in Norway. He is an enthusiastic and passionate speaker with a wide variety of interests, in particular juggling, mathematics, and puzzles of all sorts. Through his talks, shows and projects, Roger says he wants to do science communication in a different way, in order to inspire a new generation of thinkers and remove the common misconceptions about mathematics and computer science. By using microcontrollers, sensors and open source technologies, like Arduino, he is able to demonstrate the mathematics of juggling and the physics of roller coasters in both novel and entertaining ways.

    Roger Antonsen w 2008 roku otrzymał tytuł doktora informatyki norweskiego Uniwersytetu w Oslo w dziedzinie logiki, teorii dowodu i automatycznego wnioskowania. Z pasją i zaangażowaniem prowadzi wykłady dotyczące niezwykle wielu zainteresowań, w szczególności żonglerki, matematyki i wszelkiego rodzaju łamigłówek. Jak mówi, w ramach projektów podczas prezentacji i wykładów chce przedstawić kwestie popularno-naukowe tak, by zainspirować nowe pokolenia myślicieli i wyeliminować powszechne błędne wyobrażenia na temat matematyki i informatyki. W ciekawy, nowatorski sposób -- za pomocą mikrokontrolerów, czujników i technologii open source (np. Arduino) -- potrafi objaśnić matematyczne zasady rządzące żonglowaniem czy fizyczne reguły działania kolejki górskiej.

    Roger spoke at TEDxKrakow, which took place on 25 October 2013 at Stara Zajezdnia in Kraków's Jewish district. Our theme this year was Make! and was a celebration of making. We asked our speakers to explore and demonstrate the practice, and to ponder what it takes to make more makers. We featured some of Krakow's makers and created a dedicated maker space to encourage our audience of over 600 people to have a go at making something -- anything!

    The unexpected math behind Van Goghs Starry Night - Natalya St. Clair

    4:39

    View full lesson:

    Physicist Werner Heisenberg said, “When I meet God, I am going to ask him two questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will have an answer for the first.” As difficult as turbulence is to understand mathematically, we can use art to depict the way it looks. Natalya St. Clair illustrates how Van Gogh captured this deep mystery of movement, fluid and light in his work.

    Mathematics as Hidden Reality - Edward Frenkel, Ph.D.

    38:23

    There's a secret world out there. A hidden parallel universe of beauty and elegance, intricately intertwined with ours. And it's invisible to most of us.

    Imagine that you had to take an art class in which they taught you only how to paint a fence or a wall, but never showed you the paintings of the great masters. Alas, this is how math is taught, and so for most of us it becomes the intellectual equivalent of watching paint dry. Edward Frenkel wants to open this secret world to all of us because it can teach us so much about the mysteries of the Universe. In this talk, he weaves the discovery of math with his personal journey, addressing the existential questions of finding out who we are; of truth, courage, and passion.

    Edward Frenkel is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, which he joined in 1997 after being on the faculty at Harvard University. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, and the winner of the Hermann Weyl Prize in mathematical physics. Frenkel has authored three books and over eighty scholarly articles in academic journals, and he has lectured on his work around the world. His YouTube videos have garnered over 3 million views combined.

    Frenkel’s latest book Love and Math was a New York Times bestseller and has been named one of the Best Books of 2013 by both Amazon and iBooks. It is being translated into 14 languages. Frenkel has also co-produced, co-directed and played the lead in the film Rites of Love and Math (2010).

    Math dance: Erik Stern and Karl Schaffer at TEDxManhattanBeach

    10:19

    Karl Schaffer and Erik Stern founded the Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern Dance Ensemble in Santa Cruz, California in 1987. Drawing on their combined backgrounds in dance, mathematics, science, writing, music, theater, and athletics, they were drawn to uncommon fields as fodder for their choreography. The San Jose Mercury News dance critic Judith Green observed about one work, It's one of the many witty pieces about things that are hard to dance about, except Karl Schaffer and Erik Stern don't seem to realize it. Their first collaborative work, 4-Footed Hamlet, was a danced/spoken reverent parody of Shakespeare's play. With renowned dance artist Gregg Lizenbery they made Guy-o-saurs, a dance comparing the extinction of the dinosaurs with the fate of jocks. Their concert Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern, Two Guys Dancing About Math, revealed the wonderful connections between mathematics and dance, and has been performed nationally over 500 times. The Secret Life of Squares, was created with puzzle-master and artist Scott Kim, and Kim collaborated with them on their book Math Dance with Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern, which highlights the many ways to link math and dance in the classroom. The ensemble has performed throughout North America and recently in Hungary and Paris. The video includes short clips of Shadowed Flight, created and performed with Gregg Lizenbery, and music by long-time collaborator Rick Walker. More information at

    They have enjoyed the support of the National Endowment for the Arts, and have given their workshops on math and dance to educators and artists around the world, including at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where they are Teaching Artists for the Partners in Education Program.

    Karl Schaffer also teaches mathematics at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. His recent dance concert The Daughters of Hypatia: Circles of Mathematical Women celebrates the great women mathematicians and their struggles to create groundbreaking mathematics. He collaborated with NPR Math Guy Keith Devlin and world choral group Zambra on Harmonious Equations, which uses song, dance, and prose to expound on the most important and beautiful mathematical equations.

    Erik Stern has degrees in Biology and Dance, and is a Professor of Dance at Weber State University in Ogden, California, where he is also the Director of the Honors Program. His dance-theatre work Demolition Derby, when a mind loses its license to drive follows a son through the scrapes and near misses of caring for his two parents with dementia. Demo Derby forged associations with medical researchers, Alzheimer's Associations, artists and the general public and was performed in New York City in 2008.

    Choreography, text, and performance by Karl Schaffer and Erik Stern. Additional choreography and performance in video clips with Gregg Lizenbery (Shadowed Flight) and Scott Kim (The Flying Machine and Faux Paws). Music by Rick Walker. Costumes by Diane Neri

    The Spectra of Cosmic Jets And Einsteins Belief in Both Causal And Acausal Control

    12:58

    In a way Einstein's belief in the lack of meaning of math for relativity seems surprising.. while other's built entire lives out of the assumption of the unknowable math of quantum uncertainty, Einstein was in complete denial it even existed. Einstein's great early triumphs were based on the idea controlling what he looked to find. So here I ask how much meaning is there in math anyway? I think of Einstein's idea of ideas controlling the math as indeed much like math itself in many ways.

    The meaning of Noether's theorem seems to be like science where we advance our wisdom about the world by using it even while there are many types of problems we may have proof we will never solve.

    The ultimate meaning of life seems to be that it is only a pattern, and even so Einstein may have believed in higher realms of evidence, and if it's the best we can do and we may not be movie stars, what we have is not so dumb or without love of our world.

    Pray not for things but for wisdom and courage, some say is wise. Even so truth and beauty are things so I believe in a sort of divine discontent and the true glories of the world. The meaning of life seems to be in Noether's idea, or at any rate the highest elevation of her idea and it may only be that we haven't understood it well enough yet, like in our treatment of evolution. To me it's not that the real glories of the world aren't the best, just our interpretation of them.

    The method of finding the spectra would involve using different speeds of light and changes in Planck's constant which would mostly be about the speed of light since both are constant but Special Relativity holds at any radius while Planck's constant and the other changes aren't so general. Of course the constants may change together, but as in Special Relativity, the speed of the light or here the more general speed of the wave may mediate the exchange.

    The jets are called relativistic jets but I think inside the jets the motion may be superluminal, and as the Wikipedia says while the jets moving away may be explained by the phase change, there are jets seen like at more than a definite angle that can't be explained this way.

    On my blog are many more examples of Faster Than Light waves, including in cosmology and the collapse of the wave function which is instant and at all the wave. Einstein said if one of his ideas go, they all go. My synopsis is on my blog General Wave Dynamics, GWD Encyclopedia Computoria...

    Missed the previous lesson?


    Algebra I on Khan Academy: Algebra is the language through which we describe patterns. Think of it as a shorthand, of sorts. As opposed to having to do something over and over again, algebra gives you a simple way to express that repetitive process. It's also seen as a gatekeeper subject. Once you achieve an understanding of algebra, the higher-level math subjects become accessible to you. Without it, it's impossible to move forward. It's used by people with lots of different jobs, like carpentry, engineering, and fashion design. In these tutorials, we'll cover a lot of ground. Some of the topics include linear equations, linear inequalities, linear functions, systems of equations, factoring expressions, quadratic expressions, exponents, functions, and ratios.

    About Khan Academy: Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We've also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

    Dirac Lecture 2011 - Beauty and truth:their intersection in mathematics and science

    -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

    Lord Robert M. May Zoology Department, Oxford University, supported by the Royal Society of NSW & Australian Institute of Physics.

    In the mists of prehistory, it seems clear that our ancestors sought to make sense of their world through myth and magic, memorably associated with evocative cave paintings, stone circles, and the like. The Greeks attempt to understand the motions of heavenly bodies were constrained by essentially aesthetic ideas about the perfection of circles. Did the advent of the experimental method overturn this conjunction of truth with beauty? Dirac's equation speaks eloquently and amazingly to a contrary view.

    How you can be good at math, and other surprising facts about learning | Jo Boaler | TEDxStanford

    12:58

    You have probably heard people say they are just bad at math, or perhaps you yourself feel like you are not “a math person.” Not so, says Stanford mathematics education professor Jo Boaler, who shares the brain research showing that with the right teaching and messages, we can all be good at math. Not only that, our brains operate differently when we believe in ourselves. Boaler gives hope to the the mathematically fearful or challenged, shows a pathway to success, and brings into question the very basics of how our teachers approach what should be a rewarding experience for all children and adults.

    Jo Boaler is a professor of mathematics education at Stanford and the co-founder of YouCubed, which provides resources and ideas to inspire and excite students about mathematics. She is also the author of the first massive open online course on mathematics teaching and learning. Her book Experiencing School Mathematics won the Outstanding Book of the Year award for education in Britain. A recipient of a National Science Foundation early career award' she was recently named by BBC as one of the eight educators changing the face of education.

    Math isnt hard, its a language | Randy Palisoc | TEDxManhattanBeach

    8:55

    This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is 26% proficiency in math acceptable to you? That's the question teacher and Synergy Academies Founder Dr. Randy Palisoc asks the TEDxManhattanBeach audience. With only 26% of U.S. twelfth graders proficient in mathematics, Randy shares his solution: teach math as a language. Putting words back into math lessons enables even the youngest school-age minds to grasp complex concepts, such as fractions, that are traditionally thought of as abstract and difficult to understand. In his stunningly simple and effective approach, math no longer creates problems for kids but solves them.

    Randy Palisoc is a passionate educator, known for making math easy. A founder of the five-time national award winning Synergy Academies, Randy is proud to identify Synergy as an “in spite of” school. In spite of the fact that its students were disadvantaged and in spite of the fact that it did not have its own facility and had to pack up its classrooms every single week, his school was the first and only elementary school in South Los Angeles to ever win the National Blue Ribbon Award, and was named the #1 Urban Elementary School in America in 2013.

    Seeking a broader impact, Randy left Synergy this year to start Ironbox Education. One of the ways he believes we can dramatically improve America’s schools is by doing a better job teaching math to our students in a way that makes sense to them. Randy believes implementing a few changes in the way we approach math will give students the confidence and thinking skills to be more competitive in a global economy.

    Favorite TED Talk: “My Invention That Made Peace With Lions”: Richard Turere

    The “Game Changer” he most admires is Steve Jobs, because he had the ability to envision things we did not even know we needed or wanted.

    What does it mean to be beautiful? | Esther Honig | TEDxVancouver

    12:25

    In a project titled “Before and After”, Esther Honig sparked a global conversation on beauty ideals. The results were both positive and negative, and may have left more questions than it answered. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.

    YouTube Tags: beauty, identity, TED, TEDxVancouver, TEDxVancouver 2015, Vancouver, TEDx, Rogers Arena, Vancouver speakers, Vancouver conference, ideas worth spreading, great idea,

    In the spring of 2014, journalist Esther Honig embarked on an unconventional social experiment. She sent her image to 50 strangers around the world and asked that they use Photoshop to “make her beautiful.”

    The results sparked a worldwide conversation around beauty ideals and globalization before taking an unexpected twist. On June 24, 2014, the project went viral and was featured on Buzzfeed, TIME, The Atlantic, CNN International, Good Morning America, The Today Show and many other prominent media properties. It wasn’t long before her face had become a public domain, highjacked by marketers. In order to take back the narrative surrounding her project and her identity, she had to relinquish ownership, confront the criticisms and allow her project to take on a life of its own.

    The math of learning | John Mighton | TEDxCERN

    12:45

    This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. An invisible problem in our society is that we underestimate ourselves. John Mighton, the founder of JUMP Math, believes that anyone can learn anything, especially mathematics. We need to give our teachers the right methods, backed by rigorous evidence, to educate our children.

    LINK:


    John Mighton is a mathematician and playwright and is the founder of JUMP Math, a charity that is working to improve the teaching math. He appeared in Good Will Hunting, and contributed a monologue to the film based on the argument he makes in his book The End of Ignorance that most people never get a chance to succeed in math because they are not taught according to their true potential. Mighton received an Ashoka Fellowship for his work as a social entrepreneur. His plays have received a number of national awards and have been performed around the world.

    Conrad Wolfram - Making Maths Beautiful

    25:26

    Conrad Wolfram, Mathematician Founder, Wolfram Research Europe. The importance of math to jobs, society and thinking has exploded over the last few decades. Meanwhile, math education has gotten stuck or has even slipped backward. Why has this chasm opened up? It's all about computers: when they do the calculating, people can work on harder questions, try more concepts, and play with a multitude of new ideas. Conrad Wolfram discusses a new project to build a completely new math curriculum with computer-based computation at its heart - alongside a campaign to refocus math education away from historical hand-calculating techniques and toward relevant and conceptually interesting topics.

    Presented at the Learning Without Frontiers Conference, January 25th 2012, London
