The new year brings with it some additions to the website. I have added a new video page on the origins of Roman numerals. There are some interesting theories out there, including one that I personally have been taught that is likely wrong. The right place to look for where Roman numerals came from is with the Etruscans and their tally-based numbering system. It’s an interesting topic, and one which I encourage you to check out.
I have also been asked about how to purchase and download these videos. I more than encourage you to watch them for free through YouTube, and that is why I have just embedded the video code on this website. However, there may be times when you would want to watch the videos without advertisements, or when you are offline. Also, some schools block YouTube (for shame!), but that doesn’t mean students can’t learn in school from these videos. For that reason, I have created a store where you can purchase individual videos for just 99 cents each through the end of February. Payment is safe and secure with a credit card through PayPal (and you don’t even need to have a PayPal account to purchase them). I like using PayPal because you know that I will not see your credit card information, nor do you need to worry about a hacker getting access to your money. I settled on 99 cents (original price $1.99) because of the amount of time needed to research, write, and create the videos. It’s not an easy process, and the high quality does come at a cost.
If you want access to the entire library, you can purchase all current and future videos for just $25 (again, through the end of February). Once you have created an account here, you will have access to your past purchases, including the entire library file in perpetuum if you have bought it. So your $25 will save a lot of money in the future. Of course, you can always give a donation.
Thanks for your support!
