For many, studying mathematics is a negative experience. In this TEDx Talk, Carr Li offers an alternative perspective aimed at discovering the fun of mathematics by explaining three reasons why people dislike math and providing three corresponding stories to challenge those opinions. Carr (Yijin) Li, is in the tenth grade at The Masters School and is a boarding student from China. Li has taken an active role in math activities including math clubs, nationwide math competitions and math modeling events. His experience of learning both in China and the United States gives him a special understanding of mathematics. He encourages people to have a “math mindset” by always approaching challenges in life logically, creatively and thoroughly. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
