DONALD IN MATHMAGIC LAND....
Ken Morrison's insight:

I read John Medina's "Brain Rules" book this week. He said that this animation altered his life by making him look at the world and math differently.  I watched the first 15 minutes (for now) and I can see how it could (and can) be very impressionable in a positive way for young minds. It is too bad that Disney does not still make projects like this.

Ken Morrison's insight:

A fun 'plain English' style of history of film.  

 

Ken's Key Takeaways
I forgot that film gained momentum due to a bet.  I also forgot that the first showing of a film of a train moving toward the audience caused them panic.
