Would have loved to have him as math teacher

So don't be discouraged if you need to pause often or take a long time to finish the video. The rewards are worth it.
For example, the 3b1b linear algebra series is great but I couldn't have used it to become proficient at _doing_ linear algebra. Even having taken a linear algebra class, I got more out of that series as a supplement to actually working out math problems on paper than as a primary source—and I definitely think that's what's intended.

Edmund Weitz's youtube channel is also great!
Check his christmas videos for example: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjTfChr0yyz4iZq0x12Q6xA/vid...
Great explanations, engaging content and high production value. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=T647CGsuOVU
Thanks for clarifying.
Note: this is my personal recommendation, I don't benefit from promoting brilliant, just thought others might share a similar learning style.
Number file definitely cannot be credited with that. I thought it dated back to Euler though I now find that is doubted - origin seems uncertain. It is so fantastically counter intuitive it certainly belongs in recreational mathematics. And that it is used in physics makes it a thing.

And of course, Michael Penn (but that's in the post above)!
Her latest video is on Bézier Curves, using beautiful imagery from her Unity plugin Shapes:
Their "about" page has testimonials from the "Great Thinkers" Isaac Newton, Hermione Granger, and The Sun.
Maybe that's it? Learning Maths from a conventionally attractive person has got to have an effect on how much you learn.
I wonder if this is something that's been researched before?
Check any of his videos :)
