CultureLab: Mathematical artist: Why hyperbolic space is awesome: They don't teach a lot of the stuff that I am trying to show at college. Every school should replace calculus with recreational math. There's all this fun beautiful stuff that people would enjoy. While some of the other math is more useful for some jobs in the real world, it isn't actually necessary for the average high-school student to know calculus. We should be focusing more on how beautiful or awesome things are.
