Vsauce Videos

"Vsauce" is a website (i.e., a YouTube channel) done by Michael Stevens. The name "Vsauce" actually means nothing. He used a random-letter-generator to come up with the name - he just thought it sounded neat.

I have selected several of his videos for your educational benefit. These videos, most likely, will offer you information that will be new and, in some cases, will cause you to think a little harder than normal.

Before getting into lots of different math stuff, sometimes it good to take a short break. So, take a break.

Except for the first link below, each additional link has information that needs what you've learned from the previous subject(s).

The first one is an introduction to adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. You probaly already know how to do these. But, read through it anyway; it may have some things about which you are unaware and things you might find fun to know.
