I love showing this video to students to remind them that we are all doing complex math all the time. That is, every time we catch a ball, our brain is doing complex mathematics to figure out where to put our hands to catch it. In this clip, Willy Mays see's the ball hit and immediately turns around and sprints to where he thinks the ball will land. The problem that most students have is putting those calculations on paper.
