"When to Lie in Teaching Math" with Grant Sanderson of 3blue1brown

Why is Wikipedia, despite being a great reference, such a bad resource for learning math?  Why do some people find school math classes to be dry and unmotivated?  Perhaps it’s because there's more of an emphasis on being precise than on being clear.  And surprising as this may sound, sometimes, the best way to understand math is to spend time contemplating wrong ideas or ideas that are only partially true.  Join the creator of the hot youtube channel 3blue1brown, Grant Sanderson, as he explains why the fastest path to understanding might involve walking through wrong ideas and partial truths, and how that informs his creative process.
