Friday Math Movie - Did You Know 4.0

By Murray Bourne, 06 Nov 2009

Here is an update of the popular Did You Know series from XPLANE, looking at how technology continues to change the way we live and learn. It contains some thought-provoking real-life statistics.

It includes the World Record by a Singaporean for the fastest 160-character cell phone entry: 41.52 seconds πŸ™‚

As their blurb says:

This is another official update to the original "Shift Happens" video. This completely new Fall 2009 version includes facts and stats focusing on the changing media landscape, including convergence and technology, and was developed in partnership with The Economist.

You can add to the related wiki which aims "to come up with a system of education for our children that prepares them for the 21st century", at Shift Happens.

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.
