That is a great demonstration - the best I've ever seen. Like, wow.

EDIT: you changed it! What? I'm talking about the one where you have a square with side a+b and you can either pack it with squares a and b and four abc triangles, or put a c square diagonally across it and fill the corners with abc triangles.

I have included both illustrations for the Pythagorean theorem (http://archania.org/learning_motivated_by_curiosity_and_a_sense_of_accomplishment.html) .

I also like the other one where you need to count how many mini squares there are in each square, since it involves more work.  The more kids need to work, the better they will remember it.

I also like this set for teaching kids basic arithmetic operations:

Anybody know about any documentaries about cognitive biases? I was searching for it, but all I found was this episode from BBC Horizon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ha34Vu1zZo).

I am a bit surprised, since I found so many historical documentaries. I would assume that people would find documentaries about cognitive biases just as interesting as documentaries about history.

Anyhow. Here is the latest version for the educational resources: http://www.archania.org/educational_resources.html

Just remember that if your kids ever make Jeb scared then you have failed in your education Wink.

How do you explain words like egregious to kids, which can mean 2 opposite things?

It's an intensifier. From Latin for 'very very'. It was often enough used for 'bad' that it came to mean mainly that. However, some people remember the original more general meaning and, for effect, use it correctly in the opposite sense (because it is surprising, it will get more notice). It's rare for it to be applied to things that aren't good or bad because that would mix in what people expect, and it would come across as being bad.

I think that would work on a kid. Depends on the age. Maybe not a 5 year old, but I think an ordinary 7 year old could handle that.

Thanks!
And how to determine if we should write sunglasses, readingglasses and shotglasses?
Or account manager or accountmanager? The latter being the european Dutch/german word for it, the former being English?

I'm not sure what the question really is there. You just seemed to give the answer at the end.

Why do we not make language more logical so it wastes less neural capacity to learn it?
