The best of TED-Ed: How math guides ships at sea

Posted by: Tedstaff

You learn something new every day. This is especially true if you watch TED-Ed lessons, which use animation to bring to life topics as varied as “Insults by Shakespeare” and “Pizza Physics.” As a holiday gift, we’re bringing you a few of the TED-Ed’s team’s favorite talks of the year. Here, a second look at the lesson How does math guide our ships at sea? from George Christoph.

This video is a triple threat! A fascinating lesson (math with a twist), gorgeous animation and music that really taps into your pathos. Combined, the three aspects make for a truly inspiring video. Watch, and you will want to go out on an adventure!

    It is a pity that there is no Nobel Math Prize. As the Information Technology continue to advance (at exponential rate), people will learn the importance of math and logic and how it will ultimately radically transform Humanity and the Earth through the Technological Singularity.
