Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Do you have their answer?

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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?

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

The first few problems can even be done inside the head

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

You can do it with a calculator or just a brain

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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

Re: Pi Day Challenge And Happy Pi Day

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