  1. Vihart Explains the History of the Net Neutrality Debate and What’s Going on With it Right Now

    Elsewhere on the internet

    We're pretty invested in news of net neutrality here, for obvious reasons. So it's good to see a wonderful explanation of the complicated situation from one of our favorite YouTubers, Vihart. Previously in Vihart

  2. The “Pi Is Wrong” Movement Thinks Pi Day Is the Columbus Day of Math-Based Holidays

    But we still get to eat a bunch of pies today, right? RIGHT!?

    We know you love Pi Day, Internet. March 14th = 3.14, and it's an excuse to eat pie. Trust us: we're on board, but not everyone is. Some people think pi is "wrong" and that celebrating it is therefore wrong. Some of those people think we should celebrate Tau instead, but then what dessert do we eat on June 28th?

  3. ViHart Tries to Bake Cookies, Only Bakes Math

    om nom nom

    MATH, I said MATH. And anyway, you cook... never mind. Mathy-lady ViHart got together with mathy friends Andrea Hawksley, and Gwen and Ruth Fisher, and tried to make shortbread cookies without demonstrating any higher geometry concepts. They failed, but it was a delicious failure. Previously in Math

  10. Forget about Pi Day, Have a Happy Tau Day!

    Consider the Following

    ViHart continues her crusade of adorable internet videos espousing the virtues of using Tau as a constant to define and derive the dimensions of a circle rather than Pi, because it just makes things more simple and clear. At least, it seem like it makes it more clear. Well, I suppose either way, it's an excuse to eat twice as much pie as on Pi Day. Previously in ViHart

  11. O, Hear the Musings of Henri the Ennui Cat, and Then a Response From a Dog [Videos]

    meh

    A few years ago, Henri the Ennui Cat took the internet by storm, not that it even mattered though. We're all just floating along in this world, waiting for time to pass, until we all head to that litter box in the sky -- unless that doesn't exist either. Featuring piano music from Vi Hart (known for her math videos), Henri makes his existential crisis-filled return in "Henri 2, Paw de Deux." And after the jump, the canine response.

  13. For Pi Day: Pi and Pie Videos! (Yay, Homonyms!)

    Just What You've Always Wanted

    Since Pi/e Day comes but once a year, we have one video about pie and two videos about pi! And in two of them, pi/e is wrong. Above, however, pi is Shakespeare. Maybe. ViHart explains math in iambic pentameter. Somebody give this lady some baked goods. After the jump, why pi/e is (still wrong). Cheers!

  15. Mathematical Certainty of the Day: Spongebob is Not a Realistic Representation of Pineapples

    Consider the Following

    Story Time: back when I played mallet percussion in my town's amateur community band, we would do a children's concert every spring, and one year we chose a pirate theme. In keeping with the theme, we played an arrangement of the Spongebob Squarepants theme for concert band, which called for the conductor to play the role of Painty the Pirate and the band the role of the shouting kids for the bits of back and forth. Our conductor had never seen an episode of Spongebob, and his impression left something to be desired. Of course, this pirate concert contained not a single joke about music piracy. Band humor!

  16. ViHart Rounds Up the Fibonacci Series With Some Revelations on Plant Biology

    she blinded me with science

    The whole point of ViHart's Fibonacci series has been to bridge math, physics, botany, and biochemistry, and with her third video in the series, she brings it all together to show the way that math inevitably makes the world behave in a certain way. Also there are plants with googly eyes. Previously in Fibonacci Numbers

  19. Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

    Sock It To 'Em Ada

    Today, October 7th, marks the 2011 date of Ada Lovelace Day, an occasion of celebrating women role models in science, technology, engineering and mathematics; named after a lady known as the Right Honourable the Countess of Lovelace to the 19th century British peerage, but the Enchantress of Numbers to Charles Babbage, the man who invented the concept of a programmable computer. In a nutshell, Ada Lovelace was the daughter of estranged parents, estranged because her father was notable unstable poet and madman Lord Byron, and in an effort to keep her from ever developing her father's literary-infused madness, her mother made sure Ada had the kind of tutors who have their own Wikipedia pages, reasoning that she'd math the poetry out of the girl. And it worked: by the time of her death at thirty-six, Ada had become one of the only people to actually understand what Charles Babbage was getting at with his theoretical computers, to the point where she had actually written an algorithm for the putative analytical engine that would compute Bernoulli numbers.
