Numberphile

I’ve found a new fave site with dozens of short, funny, yet educational video clips. It’s about mathematics and is called numberphile.com. It’s produced in the U.K..

The videos are less than ten minutes long. Most of the presenters are college professors. Wait! Wait! Don’t hold that against them! These guys are informal and Brady Haran masterfully edits and produces them with simple graphics so that they’re fun and easy to follow.

Have you wondered how modern public key cryptography works? Watch http://numberphile.com/videos/RSA.html.

Two entertaining videos discuss the WW2 German Enigma machine. Watch the inner workings of a real one in action:

  1. http://numberphile.com/videos/enigma.html
  2. http://numberphile.com/videos/enigma_flaw.html

I’m sure that somewhere in their table of contents you’ll find at least one video clip worth watching.
