Animated ExplanationsI have been working on a way to have an "animated" way of explaining mathematics. Have a look at the two "videos" on this (incomplete) page: Algebra  Expanding "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20070709 18:10:48
Re: Animated ExplanationsIt might just be me, but your 3·6 looks too much like 3.6. #3 20070709 18:49:49
Re: Animated ExplanationsParentheses are called brackets in the UK. #4 20070709 19:16:48
Re: Animated ExplanationsCorrect, another language thing to worry about. I may need to make two pages, or just drop the word altogether. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20070710 03:42:26
Re: Animated Explanationsi like it! A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #6 20070710 13:29:03
Re: Animated ExplanationsThanks mikau. That is what I was hoping for. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20070710 16:20:34
Re: Animated ExplanationsThat's brilliant! #8 20070710 16:27:58
Re: Animated Explanationsyou need some examples of two brackets multiplied together like: The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #9 20070710 16:38:35
Re: Animated ExplanationsThanks, D and luca.
Yes, that would sit nicely on another page of more complicated examples. I can also look at squaring etc "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20070710 20:17:45
Re: Animated ExplanationsSquare Brackets is a superior name. Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #11 20070713 13:21:36
Re: Animated ExplanationsNice drawing technology. Works great in old internet explorer 6. igloo myrtilles fourmis #12 20070713 14:46:13
Re: Animated ExplanationsBasically just needs Flash Player 8. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
