I don't know much about V Hart. But I think she is the best thing since sliced bread. It's not that she is clever, although clearly she is a brain, and it's not that she is quirky, although she is quirky.
What I love about her is her non-conformity. She is a true free-thinker - a true mathematician. She optimizes the idea of 'critical' thinking. She tries to look behind the information she is meant to learn to find deeper truths. She has a different way of thinking to that of the child in the picture - but in a very positive way.
Her view of things is always from a different angle. I love how she dares to go beyond the 'official lesson'.
Anyway, if you haven't heard of her - here are a few of her You Tube clips on various things. If you watch try to pick out her general attitude toward the 'official message'.
Whatever it is that she has - we need to bottle it and feed it to our kids.
I think she rocks - hope she reads this.
