The number e is everywhere
By Randell Heyman
At first the number e seems like just another never-ending decimal; 2.71828182845905 – you can’t even express it as a fraction. But e keeps coming up in many areas of mathematics, and the tentacles of e are spread throughout everyday life. See how many Randell Heyman can explain in 3 minutes in his video “The number e is everywhere”.
Randell has an actuarial studies degree and a honours degree in Advanced Mathematics. He is currently completing a Phd in Number Theory at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). He has lectured and currently tutors first and second year mathematics at UNSW. Randell has also presented interesting and inspiring talks to over 1,000 high school students and adults.
