Murderous Maths, Simon teaching

Rational vs. Irrational

Simon discusses the infinities of rational and irrational numbers, how they relate and the infinitesimal, using a mind boggling problem about a tree orchard as an example.

Inspired by a Numberphile video and by James Grime’s tutorial about infinities (also on Numberphile).
