Then use the techniques of experimental math to come up with a nice conjecture.

I think the answer was close to 67?! Or am I wrong?

Sorry, never mind post 27

Do you have their answer?

I cannot give you the answer because they regenerate the problem with new numericals every time I open the page.

Will you take the piDay Challenge someday when you're free?

Looks like all of them can be knocked off by geogebra and you would gain the experience you need with a great package.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Nope, you'll be forced to do some of them by hand

First 2 I saw that were real math problems geogebra can do easily.

The first few problems can even be done inside the head

The first 2 I saw were clearly geometry problems. Geogebra is the first choice there.

You can do it with a calculator or just a brain

Yes, you can but aren't we discussing using math software on them?

I would think that is the central issue here, trying to wean you off of procedural programming and into a CAS.

That is the issue of a different thread

Do you become a different person because you are in a different thread. These threads are all related.
