Today I am speaking to a class of high school calculus students about limits and continuous/discontinuous functions and how that relates to computers and simulation and the whole concept of "delta t" time. IT'S GONNA BE FUN!!!!

I've been here for five minutes and it's obvious these kids love math, I love them already

It went well! One girl was like "how would you use trigonometry in a video game" and I was like OH HO HO, LET'S BREAK OUT THE WHITEBOARD

@darius when my son figured out how the Pythagorean theorem can tell you distance in his game it was one of my proudest moments

@darius ahahaha working in games is just extended punishment for not paying attention in highschool
