James Grime – mathematician, nurse juggler and comedy nerd, Cambridge, UK – ( @jamesgrime on Twitter) has a lovely, and funny, video on the connect the towns by the shortest route problem. I think this is an outstanding example of mathematical exposition, and is EXACTLY what kids should be thinking abut in mathematics classes. Bravo James!
