I learned something new everyday and the topic of today is Mathematics through a BBC Four documentary program called The Story of Maths hosted by Marcus du Sautoy.
The second film of this series is “The Genius of the East” where I learned 秦九韶 and 數書九章. Interesting!
If you have time, you might want to spend four hours watching them:
- The Language of the Universe;
- The Genius of the East;
- The Frontiers of Space;
- To Infinite and Beyond.
