The best resource for a student that thinks they hate math is a great teacher.

But what about the best resource for that teacher? Beyond an active imagination, ability to relate to students, and an incredibly strong content knowledge themselves, it may not get much better than NumberphileÂ .

While the site is simple a crudely interactive graphic with links to videos, it has, in one fell swoop, creatively curated some of the most compelling and engaging “problems” in mathematics. From Benford’s Law to French Numbers, to whether or not zero is an even number, it frames the content area of math–which is often riddled with rote practice of very traditional arithmetic and formulas–in a problem-based learning kind of approach.

Fantastic resource for bell ringers, test questions, math project-based learning ideas, or as a model for students to curate their own curiosities about the incredible–and poorly marketed–world of mathematics.

It’s also, incidentally, a YouTube channel as well, from which we’ve taken a sample video below.

This is awesome!

the answer to 4×4+4×4+4-4×4 is -12

no its 20

(4×4)+(4×4)+4-(4×4)=?

16+16+4-16=?

36-16=20

the answer is 20

(4×4)+(4×4)+4+(-4×4)=16+16+4-16=16+4=20

4×4+4×4+4-4×4 = 20

4×4+4×4+4-4×4=(4×4)+(4×4)-4+(4×4)=16+16+4-16=(16+16)+(4)-(16)=32+4-16=36-16=20

20. I don’t understand why 73% of people got that wrong.

92% of all statistics are made up.

82% of those are made larger to get attention
