What is Mind Your Decisions?

Hey this is Presh Talwalkar. MindYourDecisions is the only YouTube channel to feature math topics suggested by people around the world. Support the channel on Patreon so we can share the beauty of mathematics and make the world a better place.

By way of history, I started MindYourDecisions in 2007 as a blog about game theory (the science of strategic thinking) and applying mathematics to make smart decisions (all will be well if you use your mind for your decisions and you only mind your decisions). In 2014 I regularly started making videos for a YouTube channel to explain mathematical concepts and cover viral mathematical problems in the news. The channel was nominated for a Shorty Award in the category of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

How You Can Support

Making videos and writing mathematical posts takes a lot of time and research. In fact, many of my videos take 40 hours to make when taking into account researching topics, doing calculations, outlining notes, creating graphics, typesetting equations, animating visual elements, recording narration, video editing, soliciting feedback, revising drafts and re-recording, writing a corresponding blog post and creating graphics optimized for the web, and promoting each new video. I also use the money here to buy recording equipment, video editing software, animation software, graphical software, puzzle and game theory books, and to pay for the increasing cost of running a website (web hosting, newsletter, etc.).

For a few dollars you can help make these videos and blog posts possible, and I'm offering a few exclusive rewards here.

And if you can't support on Patreon right now that is fine too! The best way to support these videos is to subscribe to the YouTube channel and watch all of the videos. This shows the world that people care about these videos, and it will help more people discover these videos.

I'm truly thankful for all the support from people reading and sharing blog posts, videos, and my books. You are inspiring millions of people to learn about mathematics, and together we will share the beauty of mathematics with the world!

THANK YOU! You'll get updates of new blog posts and videos. This is a great way to support if you get the blog posts and videos through RSS, email, or using ad block. I'll do my best to provide early access to videos as well--it's your chance to see the videos first and get my response before everyone comments!


(MindYourDecisions is the only YouTube channel to feature math topics suggested by people around the world. Sadly some textbooks, websites, and other channels think math is limited to specific topics from certain countries. Support the channel on Patreon so we can prove math really is universal.)
