Let’s talk about numbers

Focus: Mathematics

We show the necessity of natural, integers, rational, real and complex numbers and how those numbers can be created from the simple observation of human beings activities. We explain the definition of some expressions like 2 to the power 0, for example. We show why one can not divide by 0 and some other operations in Mathematics. We start with natural numbers and, in a smooth way, we construct the integers and so on. No background in Mathematics is required. People from any fields can take this course even high school students.
