Jonathan Matte has been teaching Mathematics for 20 years, the last 13 at Greens Farms Academy. Formerly the Mathematics Department Chair, he is currently the 12th Grade Dean and Coach of the GFA Math Team and the CT State Champion Quiz Team. A former Jeopardy! contestant, Jon's outside-of-the classroom passions lie in the world of puzzles and games, both as a competitor (in the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament and the World Puzzle Championships, among others) and a creator (orchestrating the long-running GFA Puzzle Hunt and crafting puzzles that have made their way into GAMES Magazine).

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    This has to be the most unprofessional of all the Ted Talks I have seen.

  3. Sukhcharanjit Chahal sagt:

  4. City of Stars sagt:

    I don’t think the title is appropriate for this video.

    But yes, this video was pretty damn good!

    information is earned through observations and observations are made through conscience. Which, as a matter of fact, we are! at least i believe i am… anyways what i am saying is that, observations are made by me(conscience, i rather say,) and information is earned by me i.e. information that came to me, came from me. in other words, the range of all information is me!!

  6. Gérard Lefrançois sagt:

    Knowledge is Certainty. Knowledge has nothing to do with datas.

  7. Ludwig Von Koopa sagt:

  11. Hennie De Villiers sagt:

    Almost 10 minutes of boredom.

  12. Steven Deng sagt:

    I don’t understand why women have to smile at nothing

  13. Hmmm… Maybe I should defragment the hard drive while he speaks.

  14. The „surprising“ irritates me :/

  15. Trahn-Jahn sagt:

    Sanguinarius9999 Welcome to TedTalks

    *oh i’ma getchu high*

  16. Jimmy Larsson sagt:

    The golden ratio, I guess.

  17. Underscore Zero sagt:

    he doesn’t know what he’s saying.

  18. Twarit Waikar sagt:

    Golden ratio? Why?

  19. woah slow down there mate. you are at least a mr. non-glossy

  20. MrMattchappy sagt:

    So I’m just a non-glossy finish to you!? Triggered

  21. I understand. That is simply called „matt“ in norwegian

  22. That’s odd. In English, it’s that non-glossy finish you can get on your photographic prints. Hmmm…

  23. His name is Jonathan Matte. In norwegian „matte“ is the exact translation of „maths“

    Shits rigged

  24. MrSkateboardbassplay sagt:

    Sanguinarius9999 wouldn’t be surprised lmao

  25. Thai Tastic sagt:

    is the camera man smoking a hubbly bubbly

  26. Sanguinarius9999 sagt:

    It sounds like someones constantly dragging on a Bong behind the camera.

  27. If he changed that third value at 7:44 into 1.618 I bet it would have resolved perfectly.
