Ancient Philosophy: Plato & His Predecessors

Written 7 months ago
This is a beautiful and engaging course, which can be viewed as an introduction to the birth of Philosophy.

It's very well explained, with several readings, and a good teacher.

I remember that the assignments were also quite interesting and not very difficult, but you need to put a little work into them, which is a good thing.

I didn't complete it, but I'm looking forward to doing it in the future.

Flexagons and the Math Behind Twisted Paper

Written 6 months ago
This is a good introduction to flexagons, I suppose.

It's quite easy to follow through, and it introduces very interesting concepts which one couldn't have imagined at first, like Möbius strips, magic squares and Catalan numbers.

For the most part, it's a hands-on course in which you'll have to print and cut the templates for the flexagons, and play with them a little bit in order to get confident with the flexes and going through the different faces of the flexagon.

But as I said, there are very interesting concepts too related with the flexagons.

If you're interested in recreational maths or in spending some time learning new things and having some fun, this is a good course.

I took it because I had some time left till the beginning of the University course and because it looked like an easy-to-follow and entertaining course, and it turned out to be so.

The only con I find is the limited access to the course that FutureLearn offers, but it's still enough to finish it.
