I had the pleasure of meeting recreational mathemusician (think about the implications) Vi Hart today at the “Thinking Creatively” conference on our campus. Watch this brilliant video (shown during her seminar) and learn mathematics like never before.
Vi’s audience included not only design students and professionals, but a cohort of students preparing to become mathematics teachers. Her work is a beautiful example of bridging art, play, music and mathematics and, yes, pedagogy – the study of teaching and learning and how to connect with students. You can follow her videos here.
