December YouTube Wednesdays!

December YouTube Wednesdays!
December 9th was Grace Hopper's birthday and the Hour Of Code! So, we revisited Grace Hopper and Ada Lovelace. We were also practicing preCalculus and Calculus Carols which are the beat math filks ever.

Who was Ada?

September YouTube Wednesdays!
I started the year with the definition of filk:
 /filk/ n.,v. [from SF fandom, where a typo for `folk' was adopted as a new word] A popular or folk songwith lyrics revised or completely new lyrics and/or music, intended for humorous effect when read,and/or to be sung late at night at SF conventions. There is a flourishing subgenre of these called`computer filks', written by hackers and often containing rather sophisticated technical humor. 

Then I proceeded to show some Math Filks! I always start with Mathematicious which is a review of Regents Math. Then I introduce Tom Lehrer!

Regents Math Review!

Base 8 Arithmetic!

Periodic Table of Elements!


Well, that's all folks!
