Teaching Kids Math Is Beautiful and All Around You (video)

The next time your kids tell you how much they hate math and don't want to do their homework, take a second and show them this. It's probably the most mesmerizing 3 minute video I've seen. Of course, I'm an information architect so anything about process, logic and order thrills me. (Doesn't take much, eh? ;)

Can you imagine how engaged a student might be if our schools used these types of videos as teaching tools, to show the relevance of quadratic equations or parabolas to the universe around us? I might have been able to better understand those abstract concepts.

Take a look and let me know what you think. Would you consider scouring YouTube for some teaching tools to engage your kids in math? Have you?
