Very fascinating, i felt like this could have been 2 discs long. Does a good job of relating things to our everyday lives.

I despise math and patterns, but was amazed at this video-maybe hate math a bit less. Got for my homeschooled son, and he also loved it-we looked for fractals everywhere for weeks afterward! Very cool!
