Mathematics 24x7

There is no escape...believe it or not. Mathematics is everywhere.

A video created by a graduate student in a technology course. I liked the reasons this student presented in the video for learning mathematics.

Beautifully done video, however, the reasoning here fails big time.
If I am to explain to my son (7 years old) why he has to study math (claims he hates it and it is boring) - this video doesn't provide the answer.
Kids, and OK, me too, cannot see a direct link between math and art or math and sports simply because it says so on a youtube video.

Or-Tal,

Thanks for your comments. I believe the video is showing a glimpse of how math can help us understand the world around us. IMHO, the video serves one purpose: it generates curiosity of how math is related with the many things in our lives. It takes more than a video to appreciate how mathematics is around us. It takes exploration, investigation, and manipulation!

I commend the person who took the initiative and courage for creating this video and using Internet tools to create awarenes that many fear and dread. The video may not be the best to convince the average student or adult about why learning mathematics is important, but at least, the author of this video is doing SOMETHING to create math awareness. Those students who have a math class with the author of the video will definitely have a different perspective about mathematics due to his passion in connecting mathematics with real-life contexts.

If you were to edit this video, what would you change to promote math awareness? How would you show in a video that mathematics is more than x + y = z? What other ways you will promote math awareness?

I'm looking forward for your reply.
