Our eyes and brains combined are incredible information-processing machines which is why we can often understand things more quickly by looking at visuals. In this episode, we discuss how we can get the deeper meaning behind data by visualizing the information we have available to us.
The Kavli Prize honors scientists for breakthroughs in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience — transforming our understanding of the big, the small, and the complex.
From removing glare in windows to making pacemakers safer, monolayers hold a number of possibilities for advances in future technology.
When planning for the future and attempting to make choices, chance and probability can play a trickier role than we might expect! Whether two events depend on each other or not, can drastically affect the results of your predictions. In this episode, we discuss independent, dependent and conditional probabilities and all the ways outcomes can be influenced by the relationship between events!
Life is full of uncertainty and when we have any sort of question with unknown possibilities, we're dealing with probability. In this episode, we discuss mathematical probability and how math helps us predict what will happen.
While there's times when arranging groups and objects in a specific order matters, sometimes we just don't care about the order. In this episode, we discuss combinations and how this process can cut through big numbers and give us practical answers.
This episode marks the end of our exploration of sets and counting! The concepts we’ve developed along the way (intersections, subsets and the fundamental counting theorem) will come in handy as we venture into the worlds of probability, statistics and, geometry.
Visualizing how different sets fit together using a few simple circles is often easier than trying to keep track of the data in our heads. In this episode, we discuss how Venn diagrams help us visualize multiple pieces of data, understand the relationship between sets, and notice patterns we might not have initially seen!
We constantly come across patterns and use of logic in our everyday lives. We are able to tell things apart while also knowing what they share in common and relate to one another. In this episode, we discuss set theory, which gives the tools we need to understand patterns, ask questions and find precise answers both in math and the real world!
At some point in life you've probably been faced with big picture questions and everyday problems that share one thing in common: math. The truth is math is all around us, from trips to the supermarket to following stock market trends, some situations more simple or complex than others. In this 30 episode series, Jason Guglielmo, math education researcher and teacher, helps us better understand math and how we interact it with every day.
Tina and Turner are the perfect couple. Like everyone else, they use an app called Q to manage their love and sex life. Via their smart watches, Q can track everything from their body temperature to their work diary, using extensive data and ever-responsive algorithms to understand their mood, desires and turn offs, and cue their partner to act accordingly.
But when Tina and Turner decide to ‘go analogue’ and delete Q, it’s far from plain sailing. Can they find happiness without the app?
A near-future comedy about data and dating.
Driving can be dangerous, especially if you’re trying to juggle a variety of distractions while barreling down a busy highway. So scientists are looking into ways to keep us focused on the task at hand, even if you’re traveling in an autonomous vehicle.
Devices that collect data about our bodies need power, but they also might need to be very small or even ingestible. To avoid including batteries in these cases, researchers are looking for ways to harvest energy from the body itself. Hosted by: Michael Aranda SciShow is on TikTok!

Over the course of this series, we've seen that outbreak science is actually MANY sciences, including biology, epidemiology, sociology, and even economics! Because outbreak science is an interdisciplinary field, everyone has a role to play in ending outbreaks, including you! In this final episode of Crash Course Outbreak Science, we'll take a look at how different fields come together to prepare for and prevent outbreaks.
