Subject: Re: Understanding Pi
Perhaps some of these will help you. I haven't checked them out myself. Websites about pi! http://www.facade.com/Fun/amiinpi/ http://hiwaay.net/~jfrohwei/about/memorize.html http://www.mit.edu/people/jsm/Public/Humor/pimnemonic http://www.exploratorium.edu/learning_studio/pi/ http://www.acc.umu.se/~olletg/pi/indiana/html Speaking of one of our favorite mathematical constants, has anyone seen "Pi" the Movie? Its website is at: http://www.pithemovie.com and a mathematician's commentary appears on the web at http://www.psn.net/~xocxoc/math/pithemovie.htm The Annenburg Film library has some excellent films: The Story of Pi (1990) told about pi for freshmen in high school. It was quite good. At one time the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics sold the videos ($20-25 each) You can call Calttech Bookstore, Caltech, Pasadena CA 818-395-6161 and ask where it can be purchased. These videos are part of Project Mathematics based at the California Institute of Technology. Ask if your school has this film in its high school mathematics department. -Marielouise, for the Teacher2Teacher service
