Visual rendering of first 100 billion digits of pi proves randomness (Wired UK)

Visual rendering of first 100 billion digits of pi proves randomness (Wired UK) | Mathematics,Science Resources And News | Scoop.it
This image is a representation of the first 100 billion digits of pi and is equivalent to 10,000 photos from a ten-megapixel camera

Semiotic Sorceress's curator insight, December 8, 2013 2:37 PM

""I was interested to see what I'd get by turning a number into a picture," says mathematician Jon Borwein, from the University of Newcastle in Australia, who collaborated with programmer Fran Aragon. "We wanted to prove, with the image, that the digits of pi are really random," explains Aragon. "If they weren't, the picture would have a structure or a repeating shape, like a circle, or some broccoli."

Fractivities! Coming soon to a school near you! (If you issue the invitation.) | Mathematics,Science Resources And News | Scoop.it
New to Minnesota, Jennifer Schuetz from the Fractal Foundation brought fun fractal activities, or fractivities, to Math On-A-Stick last summer. Younger students had the opportunity to learn how the Sierpinski triangle is a fractal - by repeating a simple pattern over and over again, smaller versions of the same pattern are created. Older students created…
