Crochet, Reefs, Math, & Ted.com

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Monday 27 April 2009 at 8:16 am

Thanks to a post on one of the crochet lists I’m on, I had a chance to view an interesting video about crochet, coral reefs, and math over that TED.com. I’ve actually used other videos over there for classes before. There is good stuff on story telling, narrative, and poetry, but I usually shy away from anything science or math related. However, since this video includes crochet talk, I gave it a shot and did find it pretty interesting, even for a math-phobe like myself.

Unfortunately, TED.com does not have an option for embedded links, so you’ll have to go over there and watch it: Margaret Wertheim: The beautiful math that links coral, crochet and hyperbolic geometry
