Being able to look at something in more than one way is crucial throughout all of mathematics, but this fact is often overlooked. Learn to view the world differently with mathematician Michael Orrison, who will demonstrate how mathematics can easily be used to teach us about the powerful effect a change of perspective can have on our everyday lives.
