Can’t disagree with Sheldon here.
I’ve made my first youtube video! I went to the Crytek offices to find out how they use maths to make incredibly complex videogames. Watch it below.
This is really cool. The graphs look like trig functions! Might be a way to introduce them.
A while ago, Chris Moyles had a TV show called ‘Quiz Night’. Part of the program was a maths quiz, done by various pop acts (including, shudder, One Direction).
A lot of these are available on YouTube, so I collected them all together to make a convenient playlist.
I’ve used these a lot. They’re fun and engaging.
