Which Video?As the first stage of my quest to have videos for the mathsisfun.com website I now have 3 "test" videos on the same subject: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20121026 15:44:45
Re: Which Video?Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20121026 16:20:15
Re: Which Video?Thanks bobby! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20121026 16:27:59

No, not me, sorry "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20121026 18:13:19
Re: Which Video?The videos are very well done, what are you using to create them? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20121026 18:55:47

Re: Which Video?What I find irritating about many of the Youtube videos is how badly they are thrown together. They don't so much send me to sleep as leave me seething. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #11 20121027 11:21:43
Re: Which Video?Well, that is some good encouragement! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20121027 12:52:24
Re: Which Video?Hi! I like E best except for the baby. It is hard to tell which way it is facing compared to that in V. Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #13 20121027 14:33:32

Re: Which Video?Um...bobbym or anyone, I would like to post my answer, but so it doesn't affect others decisions, I'd like to put it in the post where you have to click the button to see it, and I'm not sure how to do that... Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables. [unknown] But Nature flies from the infinite, for the infinite is unending or imperfect, and Nature ever seeks an end. Aristotle #15 20121027 18:32:39
Re: Which Video?
I agree. I had it on my list but forgot to say, earlier. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #16 20121027 19:11:25

Re: Which Video?Hi Calligar, "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #18 20121028 18:16:01
Re: Which Video?Thanks noelevans, both for the thoughtful feedback and the nice words. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #19 20121029 11:02:32
Re: Which Video?Thanks, I think I got it now. Also, this answer might be a little late, but I guess better now then never...

Re: Which Video?This is not really related to the topic, but I must congratulate MIF for his hard work and no less than 12 years of it (which I only now noticed!)...

Re: Which Video?I would like Lana Del Rey. Her voice is soothing.
