A great example of visual story telling

functional-thinking

My friend Art Bardige has highly developed visual skills – he’s a silled amateur photographer and his WhatIfMath spreadsheets are literally “works of Art.”

I have a number of posts about pitching and presentations, but not very many examples of what I consider to be great presentations.

Art’s Functional Thinking – Problem Solving in the Digital Age is a great example of an engaging and informative presentation: highly visual, minimal text, tells a compelling story, and supports rather than competes with the presenter. However, it is not an investor pitch – it’s far too long for that, running about 15 to 20 minutes to fully present. But the presentation principles founders need to follow are all there.

So watch the presentation on the WhatIfMath About > Functional Thinking page or download the presentation and you may also learn some startling facts about why math is taught the way it has been for hundreds of years and why the spreadsheet has enabled a new way to teach math and to teach problem solving in the digital age.
