Video: Arthur Benjamin’s formula for changing math education

By Murray Bourne, 22 Oct 2010

What is the pinnacle of math education? In most countries, it's calculus.

Arthur Benjamin argues we should be aiming at something that's more important and perhaps useful for the masses.

Benjamin is probably best known for his "Mathemagic" shows. See Mathemagic.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
