This course is blowing my mind in the most enjoyable ways.
I have minimal understanding of math so I am following along with a calculator as Robert explains.
In Session 1 a few of my calculations don’t match with Robert’s:
- At 1:25:00 Robert gives the speed of light in miles/second as 0.864. Google gives me 186282. So .864 and 862 don’t seem to match up. What am I missing?
- At 1:25:30 Robert points out “222, that’s ɸ. That’s .618 of 360”. I think he means ɸ-1, and when I calculate (ɸ-1)*360 I get 222.49223595. Robert references 222.22 on the slide, which doesn’t seem to match up with 222.49. Where did I go wrong?
- On the next slide, ɸ is labeled as 223° which does match with 222.49 but not 222.22. Why is that?
Any thoughts are much appreciated!
