# Math without endless memorization.

Instead of memorizing formulas, finally learn why equations work.

## Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity (MetaLearn Podcast)

I had another great chat with Nasos Papadopoulos on the wonderful MetaLearn podcast. Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity has many consequences, including the famous equation E = MC² (Energy = Mass x Speed of Light²) and the notion that space and time are relative (observers can have different experiences of how large something is, or how much time elapsed).

I know which approach keeps my curiosity and enthusiasm. The general strategy is the ADEPT Method:

Learning isn’t about memorizing facts to pass a test. It’s about unlocking the joy of discovery when an idea finally makes sense. If this approach resonates with you, welcome aboard.

I enjoyed math until a poorly-taught class nearly destroyed that passion. A last-minute Aha! moment showed me math could make sense, even be enjoyable, when presented with:

• A friendly, curious attitude
• A mix of intuitive and technical understanding
• A focus on lasting insight

I share explanations that helped, hoping they help you too. I’m thrilled that BetterExplained now reaches millions every year, and has appeared in blogs for the New York Times and Scientific American. Read more…
