Applied Math

Today I was bopping around on the webs and came across this super cool TED talk by Ron Eglash. He discusses the fractals in African architecture. If you have 17 minutes, I recommend it highly.

Aside from the interesting new thoughts of the video, I am left thinking how amazing it is when we are truly engaged in learning.

I have never loved math. It has been a struggle for me all through life. Yet here I am, hanging on every word of this mathematician…because he connected math with stories, with people’s lives.

I believe that in every subject there is a way to find the spark, the passion, that makes us want to jump in with both feet. I’ll have more to write about that later, but for today I am sleepy.
