Complicating math classes

Three reasons to watch this video:

  1. it shows how the importance of math lies not in the computational skills, but in rather in framing the issue at hand and asking yourself the right questions (“The formulation of a problem is often more essential than its solution”, A. Einstein)
  2. it demonstrates how complicating a problem makes it more valuable, instructive and even easier to approach
  3. You expect sit-com-sized problems that wrap up in 22 minutes, three commercial breaks and a laugh track. No problem worth solving is that simple.”
