Who says math can’t be entertaining?
In the summer of 2017, we hosted math education YouTuber Grant Sanderson at Parkside Intermediate to present a series of math lectures for over 20 students.
Since then, Grant has grown his YouTube channel from 350,000 subscribers to nearly 2.5 million. Grant focuses on making math concepts like linear algebra and calculus more accessible using a visuals-first approach. He’s now one of the top education YouTubers, along with channels like Numberphile, SmarterEveryDay, and Physics Girl.
Recently Grant gave a talk at TEDxBerkeley 2020 on the subject of how to make math engaging. Play the video below to jump directly to his talk.
