Has anyone seen this video before? It's by Disney, done in 1959. We spotted it in the library yesterday (DVD). I remembered how wonderful Fantasia was, so I thought that this being another older animated Disney film, it might be good as well. I was right! It's a half hour long, and in it, Donald Duck takes a walk through a narrated world of the wonders of mathematics in the world around us. He's skeptical at first, thinking that math is for "eggheads" as he calls them, but the kind-voiced narrator soon shows Donald how math is in so many aspects of our lives.
I highly recommend it. My son, whose early experiences with math were pretty bad because (as I later found out) his learning style is NOT suited to traditional worksheets & drilling methods, really enjoyed it. He kept saying "that is just amazing!" "that is so cool!"
