Finding Pi With Dots!


#1

Inspired by pi day coming up soon, I have recently published a project inspired by a video, where I made dots set position randomly in a square, with a circle inside it. I have used this to calculate an approximation of pi. I would love some feedback on this. Here's the link:

And here's as close as I've gotten to pi!



Anyone have feedback/recommendations?

I heard about Pi day too! March 14th, right?


#3

What is Pi, anyway? I've heard of the guy, yes, but the mathematic thing?


#4

Isn't there infinite amount of digits in Pi

I dunno

Or is it 6 million


#5

It is
3.1415926535897932384
That's all I know. It goes on forever.


#6

Complicated, Pi. Yeah, right, it's a piece pf pie.


#7

Got 810 dots inside the circle.

Last year we learned pi and my friend who is extremely smart won and she knew 300 digits!

It's not about the numbers

It's about the Pi


#11

I know over 750. It's just an approximation though. :wink:


#12

Our class does something similar the highest anyone got was the first 75-100 digits :P


#13

I think Pi is the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter.

Last year it was the best! 3/14/15!


#16

This is all from memory. 3.141592653589. Not too much, at least not as muxh as my friends.


#17

I only know the first 8! For those of you who can recite the first 100, does it repeat?


#18

Nope! Pi is irrational, and it never repeats or ends! :smile:

Pi is used to derive the area, circumference, etc. of spherical 2 dimensional shapes. I like to think that it is similar to the Pythagorean Theorem (related to Sine and Cosine).
