Math Mornings is a Yale University lecture series "aimed at bringing the joy and variety of mathematics to students and their families." Fortunately for those of us who can't travel to New Haven to attend these stimulating lectures, they are also available on YouTube. Featuring Yale faculty and visiting scholars alike, these hour-long lectures are designed to share mathematics concepts and projects in a way that is accessible to the general public (most lectures are designed with the assumption that the audience has a seventh grade understanding of mathematics). For example, in one recent lecture, Assistant Professor Jessi Cisewski discusses astro statistics, a subfield of statistics that uses mathematical methods to better understand the cosmos. In another recent lecture, What's the Biggest Number You Can Think Of?, Tarik Aougab of Brown University discusses how mathematicians talk about and use large numbers. While these lectures are enjoyable to listen to on their own, they would also make an excellent addition to any mathematics classroom.
