4/13/2020 -- Intermediate 1B: Levers and Weights

This week we worked on some intuitive mathematics! By that I mean mathematics that can be reliably answered by the physical intuition we have all built up over our lives. This "weighty" way of thinking that we are all seemingly borne with was first formalized mathematically in Ancient Greece and this week we get to explore some of its implications.
