@ColinTheMathmo Ooh, those are good channels! I've also really enjoyed 3blue1brown and Mathologer. Chalkdust magazine sounds cool! What is your website? You don't have it on your profile.
@acciomath Possibly the bast link to start with is this one:
There's a mixture there, I'm working on having free-tags to make it easier to find stuff.
Here's one puzzle:
@ColinTheMathmo Ooh, neat!
@acciomath Enjoy! I have another ...
I have a fishpond with vertical sides and a flat bottom, and it has some water in it. I have three identical cubes, and I want to put them in the pond to make a platform.
I put the first one in, and the water rises by less than 12 cm. I put the second next to it, and the water rises by exactly 12 cm. I put the third next to them, and the water again rises by exactly 12 cm.
How far under the surface is the resulting platform?
very bad puzzle attempt Show more
@ColinTheMathmo Hmmmm… well, my guess is that the reason the water raises less than 12 cm the first time is because the initial height of the pond is less than the height of the block, but when the other two blocks are placed the water level must be above or equal to the height of the identical blocks to raise the water the same amount each time, so my naïve answer is 24 cm
@ejk Another great channel!
Also Nicky Case:
and PBS Infinite Series:
@codepuppy oh for sure!
@alice Vi Hart is great!
@acciomath She is the only reason I understand logarithms. 3blue 1 brown is the only reason I can REMEMBER how to do logarithms.
@alice 3b1b is also really great!
@christianp Neat! Thank you! :D
@acciomath I second so many things on this list and add The Quanta Science podcast. Not all of the articles are mathematics but there are some fairly regularly. It’s just someone reading an article to you, but I find them accessibly written and I really enjoy it.
@Vanessa That looks pretty neat! The latest episodes seem to have only been released in January, though.
@acciomath oh! You’re right. I’ve been going through their archive and hadn’t noticed. Oh no. I hope they haven’t stopped. Their articles in general are great, but I most love being able to listen to them.
@Vanessa I sure hope not too! I do enjoy reading their articles (even though they are extremely long)
@ThierryJoffredo Well, if I ever get around to learning French, I'll definitely check it out!
@mjd Cool! Thanks for sharing :D
@acciomath Sarada Herke's series on Youtube on graph theory and discrete maths. Just look up her name.
@acciomath Well, to be honest, I don't know how recrearional that's intended to be. It's just high quality lessons presented as a web series of short videos for popular consumption, maybe I'm biased towards the topic and I found her series enjoyable at their level, because they could be considered "recreational" compared to the very arid textbooks on the same subject.
@h Well, I can always take a look and then back out if it ends up over my head :)
@acciomath I'm curious... How did it go?
@h I've had almost no time to give them a look yet, sorry 😅
