This is a weekly reading session of the math and CS book club approaching basic topics in mathematics.
We follow the YouTube series “Maths in Japanese”. This one is designed to introduce mathematical terms for basic topics in mathematics, e.g. basic arithmetic terms, basic geometric terms, basic concepts in algebra… The YouTube series offers human written transcripts (subtitles) you can follow along while watching the videos. Each clip is between 5~12 minutes long.
To solidify the introduced terms we will mix in Wikipedia articles that cover a (loosely) related topic. As some of them tend to be quite long it is possible to either split them up or only read parts of them.
