Came across an interesting video about How Imaginary Numbers Were Invented, plus some rather astonishing info about what life was like for mathematicians in Renaissance Italy.

Also, some video commentary on the above video by a physicist: Physicist reviews Veritasium - How the Imaginary numbers were invented.

If you can pick up a book called "Asimov on Numbers" it has a great story about Imaginary Numbers and several other republished non-fiction magazine articles about math that are instructive and fun to read.

For a relatively easy-to-understand brief intro to calculus:



Calculus made easy, the Mathologer way :), Jul 16, 2022.

Note: It is assumed that you are familiar with algebra and trigonometry, and that you know what logarithms are.

The "Mathologer" channel has lots of relatively easy-to-understand intros to lots of advanced mathematical concepts.

Some YouTube channels containing highly intuitive, visually-oriented introductions to various college-level and advanced math concepts:

- Mathologer
- 3Blue1Brown (see also his website Animated math)


3Blue1Brown is GREAT

Also standupmaths for some little things is okay. Derivando (is in Spanish) is another good resource, but none is anywhere as advanced as 3Blue1Brown
