This video describes a few advanced methods for making plots using Python and Matplotlib.
Here, I cover:
* points and lines on the same plot
* logarithmic plots (log-linear)
* error bars (both y and x error bars)
* bar graphs (including stacked bar grap...

Sometimes data gets to us in the form of a large file that we would prefer read into our script directly. In this video I show how Python reads data from files, with a focus on .txt and .csv files, and how to make a graph of that data. I give an example o...

Mac Grapher can numerically solve several important types of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Here, I will show you how to use MG to solve first-order ODEs, second-order ODEs, and two coupled first-order ODEs. I also discuss non-linear dynamics, ph...

This video provides a unique view into what Calculus is, what it can be used for, and how it can be used in the real world. To illustrate how these three concepts are all connected, I consider the two very important examples of finding the solution of a c...

How do we measure angle?
We measure distance with a ruler and use units like feet, meter, mile, and lightyear. We measure time using a clock and use units of seconds, days, or millennia, among others. With angle we could use a protractor and also use ma...
