Does Pi contain all possible number combinations?

I came across the following image, which states: π\pi Pi Pi is an infinite, nonrepeating (sic) decimal – meaning that every possible number combination exists somewhere in pi. Converted into ASCII text, somewhere in that infinite string if digits is the name of every person you will ever love, the …

Why can you turn clothing right-side-out?

My nephew was folding laundry, and turning the occasional shirt right-side-out. I showed him a “trick” where I turned it right-side-out by pulling the whole thing through a sleeve instead of the bottom or collar of the shirt. He thought it was really cool (kids are easily amused, and so …

Visually stunning math concepts which are easy to explain

Since I’m not that good at (as I like to call it) ‘die-hard-mathematics’, I’ve always liked concepts like the golden ratio or the dragon curve, which are easy to understand and explain, but are mathematically beautiful at the same time. Do you know of any other concepts like these? ================= …

Is dydx\frac{\textrm{d}y}{\textrm{d}x} not a ratio?

In the book Thomas’s Calculus (11th edition) it is mentioned (Section 3.8 pg 225) that the derivative dydx\frac{\textrm{d}y}{\textrm{d}x} is not a ratio. Couldn’t it be interpreted as a ratio, because according to the formula dy=f′(x)dx\textrm{d}y = f'(x)\textrm{d}x we are able to plug in values for dx\textrm{d}x and calculate a dy\textrm{d}y …

Can I use my powers for good? [closed]

================= ================= 29 Answers 29 ================= If you are in the US, there are several thousand institutions of higher learning, and at many of them there is very little “pressure to publish”. At others, the “pressure to publish” can be met by publishing a textbook or some work of scholarship …
