    Discovery vs. Invention

    Discovery vs. Invention

    Math always seems so objective, with little room for debate.  In other fields there are sometimes huge disagreements among experts.  But what about math?  In this episode, Pete and Noah discuss the age-old argument of where math came from...  was it a discovery or was it an invention?  Join us as we dive into the debate.
    Here's a place where you can share your thoughts about our previous seven topics  Were they more invention or more discovery? https://bit.ly/mathclubpodcast-ep8

    Ad Infinitum

    Ad Infinitum

    Infinity.  Most kids first learn about this neverending concept when double and triple jinx don’t seem to do enough anymore.  There are infinity pools, the Infnity Engine, and even an Inifinity War.  But how does infinity differ from the counting numbers and the familiar rules that govern them?  In this episode, Pete and Noah use the paradox of Hilbert’s Grand Hotel to explore infinity and discuss some of its interesting quirks.

Winning formula

I’ve never been much of a math guy, but I like learning about the natural and scientific world, and math is an integral part of that. My experience with math as entertainment is that many creators struggle to find a balance between in-depth, interesting discussions and a beginner-friendly level of discourse. These guys have it. Part of it is their expert knowledge, part of it is their clear love of the subject, and the most essential aspect of their achievement is a wide breadth of teaching experience, including elementary-age instruction. It’s an impressive success, but mostly it’s just great to listen to.
