# Must Watch TED Talks for Homeschoolers

*This post may contain affliliate links. Thanks for your support!*

By now you’ve probably heard about “TED Talks“.

TED is a non-profit organization on a mission to spread ideas. TED’s tagline is Ideas worth spreading. How do they go about accomplishing their mission?

They provide powerful “talks” which are 18 minutes or less in length.

I’ve come across a few gems and today I’m sharing **Must Watch TED Talks for Homeschoolers**.

So, grab a spot where you can share these while you are **Homeschooling High School** (*after previewing them yourself first*)!

Admittedly, these are a little math heavy,

but they won’t disappoint.

These are perfect for math inspiration for homeschooling high school students and parents alike!

He makes math look fun!**A Performance of “Mathemagic”**– This talk features a race against calculators, birthday guesses, and mental math.**Math Class Needs a Makeover**– This is a pretty compelling talk on how to approach math with your students.
