- Math = Letting Dead People Do the Work at Let’s Play Math
- How calculus is changing architecture at Casting Out Nines
In case you do not know what TED is, here’s a description from their website:
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).
I discovered that it is now possible to embed TED talks on WordPress blogs. So, I thought I should post one too. This is a talk Arthur Benjamin gave in February 2005 titled, “Lightning Calculation and Other ‘Mathemagic.’”
By the way, here is a link to the TED talks tagged math.
