Most people are surprised that I actually like math. I didn't necessarily enjoy it in high school, but I'm completely fascinated by it now. And I really wish I paid more attention. People assume that as a designer, I don't need to do math. But that's not true at all. I use geometry and algebra all the time. I occasionally even need to break out a spreadsheet that – gasp – has some formulas.

One of my favorite blogs is Math with Bad Drawings. I love how Ben simplifies *really* complex concepts into simple drawings. Today's post – Simplify! – is wonderful. And if you like math, you should check it out.
