Over the last few months, we’ve had the honour of working with some fantastic online content creators who share our goals of helping make math accessible to students. We wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the great things they’ve done and how they’ve been able to use Maple Learn and the Maple Calculator to help explain math concepts to their audiences. Whether you’re looking to learn or searching for ways to make math engaging to others, these content creators are worth checking out!
Much as some may complain about “attention spans these days”, there is definitely merit in being able to clearly explain high school level math in under a minute. If you’re looking for tips and tricks to help you understand math concepts, look no further than Justice the Tutor, whose TikTok is full of easy-to-understand videos explaining how to solve a wide variety of problems. You can check out his video on solving systems of equations here.
I think it’s fair to assume that most people reading this like math, but all of us are multi-faceted individuals—so who’s also into drag? Online Kyne is, and she explains tons of math concepts in a fun, engaging, and sparkly way. Check out her video on 3D plots (and her matching 3D-glasses-themed eye makeup) here!
If you’re looking for more ways to have fun with math, check out Tom Rocks Math, run by the University of Oxford’s Dr Tom Crawford. He rose to fame with his “Naked Mathematician” series, but even his clothed videos explain difficult math topics in ways that are clear and accessible. You can see how he tackles a complex topic like partial differentiation here.
Whether you’re looking for a refresher or to learn something new, Dr Trefor Bazett’s YouTube channel has everything from cool math facts to complete courses on calculus, linear algebra, and more. If you don’t mind feeling called out for that one dumb mistake you made on a test once, this video on common algebra mistakes is a great resource for both students and teachers. What’s more, we’re excited to announce that Dr Trefor Bazett will be hosting a Maplesoft webinar where he’ll be discussing how to design effective interactive learning activities! The webinar will be on June 15, and you can sign up here. This promises to be a fascinating talk and a great way to get tips from someone whose online presence exemplifies his skill at getting people to engage with math, so we hope you’ll check it out.
These content creators are just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve also been working with Bobby Seagull, a math teacher and author, and TikTok personalities nerdynas and tamerxi, whose student-centric content is both fun and useful. For our Japanese audiences, you can also check out Kantaro Suzuki’s videos on solving a variety of math problems, and Takumi’s video where he brought in other YouTubers to compete in a puzzle challenge using the Maple Calculator!
We’re so thrilled to see how these amazing content creators are using Maple Learn and the Maple Calculator to create new content and engage with their audiences. It’s very exciting for us to be working with so many people who share our goals of making math accessible and interesting, and we love seeing what they’ve done with our products. Whether you’re a student looking to further understand your courses, a teacher looking to find more ways to engage with your students, or just someone who wants to learn more about math, these videos are all a fantastic resource. It’s clear that all these content creators have a passion for math, and as people who share that passion, we’re so happy to be working with them to help others find their own interest in math.
