I wanted to quickly share a video, which I stumbled upon on the history of zero. A video by The Royal Institution and narrated by Hannah Fry, it describes how the history of mathematics closely mirrors the history of zero – first as a concept, and then ultimately as a number. The short animation shows how the evolution of the understanding of zero has helped shape our minds and our world.
I especially love the video due to its accessibility – anyone can understand it. It is in this way that mathematics can be popularised and loved by all!
Hope you enjoy! M x
