60 Second Lecture: Down with Fractions

I like the thinking in the School of Arts and Science at the University of Pennsylvania.

Every few weeks in Spring and Autumn, one of the faculty share their perspectives on topics ranging from human history and the knowable universe, to fractions and fly-fishing – and they are only allocated one minute for the lecture.

Should be compulsory everywhere.

We’ll feature some of these lectures in ‘What I Learnt Today’.

Today – Dennis DeTurck, a mathematician and the Professor for Excellence in Teaching, says “Down with Fractions!”
