# Interactive video lesson plan for: Friends and Strangers Theorem - Numberphile

#### Activity overview:

A famous mathematical theorem explained with the help of Facebook, One Direction and a collection of Numberphile's Facebook followers.
Videos features Simon Pampena - https://twitter.com/mathemaniac

NOTE: Yes we should have used greater/equals symbols at around 5:15, but the meaning pretty clear and Brady and Simon live about 10,500 miles apart --- so not worth a re-shoot!
