Friday Math Movie - Toys that make worlds

By Murray Bourne, 04 Dec 2009

Here's the guy that created SimCity and Spore.

Will Wright's talk (from the excellent TED series) gives an outline of how different disciplines (including math, of course!) are involved in game creation. He also talks about the power of toys for learning.

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't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
