The purpose of my work is to share as much information as possible.
The purpose of my work is to share as much information as possible. Numerous topics are discussed with the central theme being mathematics. The end goal is to create a math curriculum for all of high-school mathematics, starting with The Real Number Set and Basic Operations all the way up to and including an introductory course on Calculus and one for Probability and Statistics.
As of this moment I have 540+ videos available on YouTube, approximately 230+ of which are directly related to teaching mathematics, many more of which are laying down the foundation for additional math related content.
If you are interested in browsing the math content, you will find the Table of Contents and My Vision statement below. The videos are separated into three main categories:
1) ASMR Math is focused on teaching mathematics and its applications with a calm demeanor, alleviating the anxiety many feel when faced with the task of learning math. 44+ videos, over 24 hours of lessons have been produced for this section so far. Introduction and Table of Contents: https://chycho.blogspot.ca/2015/03/asmr-math-introduction-and-table-of.html
2) The Language of Mathematics is focused on teaching the syntax of this language as rapidly as possible. 161 videos, approximately 24 hours of lessons have been produced for this section so far. Table of Contents: https://chycho.blogspot.ca/2010/01/language-of-mathematics-table-of.html
3) Math in Real Life is focused on using the syntax that we have learned from The Language of Mathematics videos and using them in the real world. 22 videos, approximately 5 hours of lessons have been created for this section so far.

The advent of the Internet in combination with low-cost computing has brought about a surge in the need to be literate in the language of mathematics. Due to these advancements math has become an integral part of our society and the need to be literate in this language a necessity.
There are, however, some major problems. Many education systems across the globe are under stress and failing. The causes are vast and varied so we’ll refrain from discussing the details of this collapse but instead focus on possible solutions to our predicament.
It is my belief that access to a good education is a human right, an obligatory gift from one generation to the next, and as long as we have access to an open, unfiltered, and uncensored Internet, then we, as a global community, can make a difference. We can fill the gap left behind by our governments and institutions by becoming proactive educators.
For my part, I will try and show how beautiful, how powerful, how useful and how easy it is to learn the bare minimum we need to know about the language of mathematics to enhance our lives. To achieve this task I am producing videos for all major topics covered in secondary school math curriculums in Canada and the United State, i.e., all major topics starting with The Real Number Set up to and including an introductory course in Calculus and one for Probability and Statistics.
