The Power of Mathematical Visualization | The Great Courses
Logical thinking and Mathematical visualisation are powerful tools for solving problems and keeping your mind healthy.
The Power of Mathematical Visualization teaches you these vital problem-solving skills in a math course unlike any you’ve ever taken. Taught by award-winning Professor James S. Tanton of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), these 24 half-hour lectures cover topics in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, number theory, probability, statistics, topology, and other fields—all united by fascinating connections that you literally see in graphics and projects designed by Professor Tanton. In demand worldwide for his teacher and student workshops, Dr. Tanton is MAA’s Mathematician-at-Large—a globe-trotting advocate for teaching math “with beauty and joy and wonder and humanness,” as he was recently quoted in The New Yorker magazine.
As an example of Dr. Tanton’s approach, see the many applications of a simple game called dots-and-boxes, which is the gateway to a universe of mathematical concepts and operations– some of which might seem quite unrelated.
