January 2016 Update
December Donation Challenge a Resounding Success
We are overwhelmed at the generosity of Complexity Explorer's supporters. In December, fifty four of you decided to donate funds to help us continue achieving our goals. Our goal was to match a $4000 anonymous donation with $4000 raised by you. We are delighted to announce that we have surpassed this! As of December 30th, 2015, we have raised $4800, and we received our $4000 match bringing our grand total to $8800. Thank you!
If you would like to join our fifty four stellar December supporters, there is still one more day left in our donation drive! With another $200 we will break $5000 raised for a total of $9000 with our match. Follow this link to make your donation.
Vector and Matrix Algebra and other Tutorial Updates
In case you missed the good news, Vector and Matrix Algebra with Anthony Rhodes, our latest tutorial, is now live and ready for you. Introduction to Information Theory will be coming to you in January - Seth Lloyd's videos are ready and we are working on quizzes and homework. We are continuing to film Computation Theory, and we have plans soon after these tutorials to work on Optimization Methods as well as Renormalization Methods. As the first of our 2016 full length courses will not be starting until the summer, we hope you take full advantage of the tutorials to prime your complexity math skills!

New in the Complexity Explorer Store
We know many of you have enjoyed our Complexity Explorer t-shirts, however not everyone likes t-shirts! We have created a limited number of Complexity Explorer tote bags in black, made with sturdy 100% cotton. Tote bags are endlessly useful, carrying groceries, meeting notes and a laptop, dog treats, your future Nobel prize winning idea... really, how can you live without them? Do yourself (and Complexity Explorer!) a favor and pick one up today.
Nonlinear Dynamics Videos Ready for Subtitling
Calling all students of Liz Bradley's Nonlinear Dynamics course! All of the course videos are available to be subtitled and they need your help. If you have already joined our Amara team then you can find them on our page under the Nonlinear Dynamics project. If you haven't subtitled for us before but would like to help out, follow the instructions on this page. We particularly need English captions and Spanish subtitles first of all, however we are happy to see subtitles in any language.
