Solving the Borromean hairpins puzzle (Math Immersion Month Day 13)

Proof that I did solve the Borromean hairpins puzzle! Today was another busy day, so aside from doing more arithmetic practice, I quickly spliced together some new footage with clips from my interview with mathematician Henry Segerman and my first time using a 3D printer:

I like how this one turned out! Storytelling and editing is definitely more fun when I can work with a variety of footage, which is much easier to acquire over the course of several days. I’m so ready to stop making daily video blogs now, but I’ll stick it out until day 100, which will be in early January. I can’t wait to have more time for math again! I also really need a proper weekend after working two weekends in a row now, bleh.
