Come see the amazing Grand Sanderson, fouder of the famous animated math channel 3blue1brown. My name is Grant Sanderson. I studied math at Stanford, with a healthy bit of seduction from computer science along the way. For a while, my job experience was pointing me in the direction of software engineering/data science, but ultimately the primary passion for math won out at the expense of the mistress.
I was fortunate enough to be able to start forging a less traditional path into math outreach thanks to Khan Academy’s talent search, which led me to make videos and write articles for them in 2015/2016 as their multivariable calculus fellow. After that, I began focusing my full attention on 3blue1brown.
3blue1brown, or 3b1b for those who prefer less of a tongue-twister, centers around presenting math with a visuals-first approach. Rather than first deciding on a lesson then putting illustrations to it for the sake of having a video, almost all projects start with a particular visualization, with the narrative and storyline then revolving around this image.
