Watch FREE online Math videos, documentaries, lessons, lectures, and movies that are educational and related to mathematics: Mathematics is philosophy and logic for quantities, operations on quantities, and geometry. Mathematics is a philosophy constrained to universal consistency. In fact, Mathematics is the only philosophy, or science, if you permit, that is constrained to universal consistency. This is not necessarily true of any science. Nature always reveals herself how she is, and not how we would want her to be, leaving open possibilities of contradiction within our limits of understanding. For example, it may turn out that the laws of nature are entirely self consistent. However going in, there is no way to know and in fact no reason to impose any such conditions a priori (before the fact) upon her. But the rules of math are always consistent by design. When people say, "math and science," the math always comes first. Math is the language of science and reason. We hope to promote math, science, personal academic hobbies, critical thinking and student driven learning. Particular subjects here may include algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, differential equations, statistics, probability, higher dimensions, abstract algebra, linear algebra, vector analysis, complex analysis, topology and more. All available right now 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
