When 111 111 111 is multiplied
by 111 111 111 it is
equal to 12345678 9 87654321

You can remember the value of PI (3.1415926) by counting each word’s letters in “May I have a large container of coffee?”

21978 when multiplied by 4 is the same number with digits in reverse order...
21978 x 4 = 87912

If you add up numbers 1-1000 consecutively (1+2+3+4+5…) the total is 5050.

From 0 to 1000, the letter “A” only appears in 1000 (“one thousand”).

The billionth digit/number of Pi is 9.

The digits to the right of the Pi’s (3.141…) decimal point can keep going forever, and there is no pattern to these digits at all.

The largest known prime number (so far) is 12,978,189 digits long.

40 when written “forty” is the only number with letters in alphabetical order, while “one” is the only one with letters in reverse order.

The Fibonacci sequences are numbers where each following number is the sum of the previous two: 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 …

A Palindrome Number is a number that reads the same backwards and forward, e.g. 13431

142857 is a cyclic number, i.e., it’s digits are rotated around when multiplied by any number from 1 – 6. 142857 x 1 = 142857
142857 x 5 = 7 14285
142857 x 4 = 57 1428
142857 x 6 = 857 142
142857 x 2 = 2857 14
142857 x 3 = 42857 1

If each count were a second long, it would take about 12 days to count to a million and about 32 years to count to a billion.

Multiply your age by 7 now multiply that product by 1443. What do you get? Your age repeats 3 times.

The mathematical name for the division sign is called OBELUS.

Did you know that Giga stands for a Billion?

Googol is the term used for the number followed by 100 zeros and was first used by a nine-year old, Milton Sirottain 1940!

...What is the opportunity in the Trivia game business?
-The opportunity is defined not only by the timing but the target position in the market and the leveraging of not only credibility from TV guide but the chance to access all the material and resources that go into TV. I know Mr. Kawasaki said partnerships are BS, but the partnership from Mr. Reiss’s perspective was absolutely essential. The research that was available based on the previous success of the Trivia...

Math Curse By: Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith
Math Curse, written by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, takes us on a journey with a small child who is cursed by math. His teacher’s name is Mrs. Fibonacci, who was a well know mathematician who connected a mathematical sequence found in nature. Of course Mrs. Fibonacci told her class and this child how easily math can be seen in the outside world. Our main...

...Santoro, A. (2004). “Manipulatives: A Hands-On Approach to Math.” Principal, 84 (2), (28-28).
This article speaks about the importance and significance of the use of manipulatives in the classroom, specifically in the subject of math. Manipulatives have proven to be valuable when used in a math class and are even more valuable to the children when they are young, and are learning new math concepts. Students are able to physically...

...mathematics and science and the Riemann-Zeta function may help us understand primes more.
The problem is that the world just doesn't really appreciate math that it cannot see, and that's what turns off aspiring mathematicians.

All of those set theory results are indeed from Cantor. It’s so fundamental in math that in your first proving class, after proving that square root of two is irrational, you will proceed on proving Cantor’s...

When is a billion not a billion?
Did you know that the American system for naming large numbers is not the same as the British system? What we call a billion, they call a thousand million. And what they call a billion, we call a trillion! And it continues from there. After a million, we do not agree on any of the names for large numbers. The chart below summarizes the differences.

ANALYSIS
Physics has a lot of topics to cover. In the previous experiments, we discussed Forces, Kinematics, and Motions. In this experiment, the focus is all about Friction. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction like fluid friction which describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other; dry friction which...
