Will a falling pencil hit the table? We do the maths!

From Standup Mathematician.

Do check out Jane Street’s Real Numbers:

Here is a scan of all the working out:

We have a full break down of the working out for teachers:
There are Think Maths free resources for teachers for most of my videos!

Yes we did lose the video file from the GoPro filming the working out! So I had to recreate it using a scan of the pages. Which raises a question: which do you prefer? A GoPro pointing at the notes (like from 11:31 onwards) or an animated scan (like up until 11:05)? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

– Nothing yet! Let me know if you spot anything.

Thanks as always for Jane Street being my principal sponsor.
