|A short elementary exposition of continued fractions, without proofs. Students usually know that any number (e.g. pi) can be approximated to any desired accuracy by decimal fractions, but this method does the same using ordinary fractions. Examples include the square root of 2 and pi. Links to more detailed expositions are given at the end.|
