Tibees is a YouTube channel with over 500,000 subscribers and 52 million total views. I upload weekly videos covering interesting topics in physics and mathematics.
History of Physics and Mathematics
Lately I have been focussing on the history of physics and mathematics with videos going through various historical documents such as Einstein’s Grades and Richard Feynman’s PhD thesis. I even covered ancient Babylonian mathematics in my video where I made a replica of a cuneiform tablet out of gingerbread.
One of my most popular series is the playlist 'Unboxing exams'. In these videos I go through exam papers from universities around the world throughout eras in history and provide my opinion on the difficulty and scope of the questions. These videos give insight into what it is like to study various science subjects at university. A particularly popular video in this playlist is 'This is what an astrophysics exam looks like at MIT'.
Joy of Mathematics
One of my most creative series is 'The Joy of Mathematics' which is a relaxed and entertaining approach to teaching math. These videos are in the style of legendary painter Bob Ross and are filmed outside in nature with a chalkboard and often feature my cats. A particularly popular video in this playlist is 'Logarithms explained Bob Ross style'.
I have done several collaborations with other YouTubers, a few of them are featured below.
I joined Jake Roper, Casey Neitstat and Phil Torres in the YouTube Original production 'Could You Survive Jumanji?' created by VSauce3.
I challenged Dianna Cowern from Physics Girl to look through an MIT exam from 1876.
We made a video on Dianna Cowern's channel looking through one of her toughest exams from her time as a student.
