Maths of the Coronavirus - Brilliant trending video explanation link

One of my subscriptions on You Tube (3 Blue 1 Brown) has had an unexpectedly “trending” video - with more than one million hits on twenty four hours…

While “off topic” in subject the same maths can be (AND IS) used for modelling learning, memory / forgetting curves and might help some folks visualise why their speed cards times taper off…


This is the basic link.

Hope it inspires some here to look into maths and memory…

Yeah,I also follow the channel 3 Blue 1 Brown. Their explainations and ways to visualise concepts in a very good way. I especially liked their Bayes Theorem intitution.

Funny you should mention Bayes theorem - I’m not very good at maths but I’m “keen” but i have a complete mental block in that area - i can read and listen and nod and think i get the idea - but twenty four hours later - GONE. I’ll check out 3 Blue 1 Brown on that… Though again to be truthful some of his stuff is way beyond my level.
