I found them on this website: _http://www.iflscience.com/brain/math-gifs-will-help-you-understand-these-concepts-better-your-teacher-ever-did. My favorites are the trigonometry ones:

Pythagoras' theorem:

Illuminating as well as entertaining. Great find whitecoast. Thanks for sharing.

Another proof for the saying that a (moving) picture can outdo a thousand or so words...
stuck in the middle of nowhere actually might mean: BEing Now Here

everything is thinkable - much is possible - little is probable - only one thing at a time can really happen

yesterday is history - tomorrow is a mystery - today is a gift - that's why it's called 'present'

Exactly ha ha great find whitecoast, thanks for posting i'll bookmark this one for future reference.
Globalist elites design their policies according to the classical maxim of divide et impera [divide and rule], yet its esoteric corollary is solve et coagula [concentrate and dissolve] the alchemical process applied to entire societies. Behind inane sloganeering on freedom, democracy, and human rights lies a relentless desire to destroy. Sovereignty must be ended, sex and the family distorted unto grotesquery, and God usurped by Mammon. The nation – the great extended family— must be annihilated. What the Brave New World needs are, but a demographic biomass engineered for exploitation.

Nice! I think I'll probably understand math using this kind of images!

Thanks whitecoast!

See, this really irritates me - and I'm good at math.

With those GIFs, math is WAAAAY easier to understand. So, why don't they teach it that way?

Why do we have to suffer through year after year after year of totally complicated and borderline nonsensical explanations when a simple picture can convey the meaning to darn near anybody?

Because that just makes too much sense and is diametrically opposed to their common cores

My love affair with math is 50+ years old and these GIFs are pure poetry in motion.

Has any read A Little Book of Coincidence
http://www.amazon.com/Little-Book-Coincidence-Wooden-Books/dp/0802713882

A most unusual guide to the solar system, A Little Book of Coincidence suggests that there may be fundamental relationships between space, time, and life that have not yet been fully understood. From the observations of Ptolemy and Kepler to the Harmony of the Spheres and the hidden structure of the solar system, John Martineau reveals the exquisite orbital patterns of the planets and the mathematical relationships that govern them. A table shows the relative measurements of each planet in eighteen categories, and three pages show the beautiful dance patterns of thirty six pairs of planets and moons.

it's only 35 pages long but has some good drawing's similar to above, good from the point of view that it gives a visual representation to mathematical constructs

Absolutely! It's like objective art, perhaps without the emotional component, though it does give a super nice feeling to see a dim concept lit and summed up so concisely and simple.

Why do we have to suffer through year after year after year of totally complicated and borderline nonsensical explanations when a simple picture can convey the meaning to darn near anybody?
My answer would be compartmentalization with intent, on behalf of the planners of todays idiocracy. 4D 'of course', through, as for example John Taylor Gatto shows, mad human planners of the prussian schools, designing the removal of imagination from the pupil to become a pawn of state. Which in turn got the attention of American social architects who imported and improved these brainwashing ideas and it morphed into the modern day school system with its separated classrooms and disciplines, pavlovian bell ringing, and authority making you emotionally and intellectually dependent on a curriculum making little connected sense, connections which are absolutely vital for deeper learning.

Just as Gardner (Multiple intelligences) and Mithen (Prehistory of mind - Mind as a cathedral) shows; we are dependent on the connection of our specialized intelligence modules to communicate with our general intelligence if we are to deepen learning, navigate better, be wiser, etc. This cross intelligence communication has been trained out of us, sealing compartments of mind.

Has any read A Little Book of Coincidence

When dusting off my math and physics a few years ago, I was looking for visual material which could support the dry and less than wondrous school books provided for the course, with the connections I knew must lie between the now secluded scientific branches and I found some of the other 'wooden books'; "The golden section", "Sciencia" & "Quadrivium". The latter is supposedly a Pyhtagorean (and platonic adapted) teaching system which, when you had graduated as a student of 'the Trivium' (learning how to learn, research and convey), could move on to studying the Quadrivium (4) consisting of; 1. Arithmetic (Number) - 2. Geometry (Number in space) - 3. Harmony/ Music (Number in time) - 4.  Astronomy (Number in space & time).

That's of course very appealing to the brain having such a promise of a nice and simple connecting structure of usually undisclosed ratios, which at first sight seems to dispel the complexities of modern science, which in turn probably is a derivative function of an obfuscated education system with its segregated disciplines.  I still haven't actually read the books fully, but they have been good visual inspiration in reinstating wonder about science, because they are so well illustrated, with many examples of surprising ratio coincidences - mathematical beauty. Though I'm not sure how I could use the information in any practical way, other than level inspiration for the 'mathemystical' pattern based computer games I was tinkering with a while back.

Why indeed. And this brings up simple related "math" teaching method, as opposed to the new U.S. "Common Core's" stupidly-bizzar teaching methods. Check out how these kids have learned - finger Abacus:

I found this video on youtube a few year's ago nature by number's

the music is nice and the video is really good.
