Welcome to Breaking Math!

Here at Breaking Math, we don't try to give you concepts we think you can't handle just to make ourselves feel smart. We get that math is hard for a lot of people, and our episodes are designed to accomodate that. For the more mathematically minded of you, however, we don't skimp on the math, and even have write-ups to go with every episode.
