Arthur Benjamin says in this TED Talk that there is a side of Mathematics that does not get the attention it deserves. He says that we spend so much time on the calculation but not enough time on the application. He encourages us to use Mathematics to train our thinking skills.
Math is logical, functional and just … awesome. Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin explores hidden properties of that weird and wonderful set of numbers, the Fibonacci series. (And reminds you that Mathematics can be inspiring, too!)
