Welcome to Featured Links! This is a blog category about interesting math-y stuff offsite.
Vi Hart is a self-proclaimed “recreational mathemusician.” To put it simply, she doodles about math for fun (and makes music, too).
What’s great about her videos is that they never seem to discuss anything particularly educational or useful. They’re just pretty spirals, animals, stick figures, and weird triangles… until suddenly you realize that you’ve been looking at math all along.
Vi Hart’s YouTube channel is a great place to (1) waste time on the Internet and (2) have your mind absolutely blown. Warning: she talks reallyreallyreallyfast. Don’t worry if you don’t catch everything she says – I know I never do. Here are links to a few of her videos.
Open Letter to Nickelodeon, Re: SpongeBob’s Pineapple under the Sea. This one makes more sense if you’ve already watched the video above.
Sound Braid. This one’s got music!
