A while ago I came across the youtube channel 3Blue1Brown, and I have to say that I'm very impressed by his videos. They are without a doubt some of the best videos on mathematics on youtube. He's able to explain topics, some of which are quite advanced, with a clarity that I've rarely seen. And don't worry, you don't need a degree in mathematics to understand them.

As an example, here's his video on the Riemann zeta function, analytic continuation, and the infamous 1 + 2 + 3 ... = -1/12:



His latest video is about the Stolen Necklace Problem and the Borsuk-Ulam Theorem:



Perhaps his best work so far is his Essence of linear algebra series. Anyone who's ever struggled with algebra should definitely check it out, but even if you're well versed in this subject you'll still appreciate it. This is the introduction video:



He's currently working on an "Essence of calculus" series, which he plans to post in April.

I watched the first 6 videos on linear algebra, they are very good and should be where anyone studying linear algebra should start. It's amazing how different something can seem when it's explained by someone who understands what needs to be explained first.
I like to imagine ...
