Lectures for my mp3 player

Postby GoldenYears » Tue Aug 10, 2010 5:50 pm UTC

So basicly I run a lot, which means many hours a week where im giving my brain an undeserved rest.

I am looking for lectures in mathematics (and other fields) that I can listen to while running. I'd rather have proper academic lectures than the TED-type ones if you know what i mean.

To give you an idea of my level; I am considering downloading the MIT lectures in linear algebra, because they seem good.

I'm posting this because I want to spare myself the trouble of having to listen to the wrong things.

ideas..!?

The local library probably has Feynman's lectures on CD (recorded during his classes). Entertaining.

I don't think that's possible or that such a thing exists. You can't listen to a lecture the same way you'd listen to an audiobook. You need time to reflect on the ideas, and also it's much easier if you can read the notation on a blackboard.

What I suggest instead is that you find a mathematical problem and think about how to solve it while running.

The only hard part is choosing which ones to listen to.
