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!

...1. 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 theTrivia game in the Canadian market and how in the past that correlated to some multiplier of success in the American economy. The TV guide game will not be the first Trivia game in the US market. The position of t
2. Why is it an opportunity for Bob Reiss?
I think opportunity is when timing, positioning, and talent align. Mr. Reiss had all three. If this particular opportunity would have happen 10 years before he would have been busy running his company and the timing would have been off. Had he not succeeded before he would not have been in position. His experience carried him a long way. Finally, he obviously had the talent from not only his educational background, but over the course of his career where it was continuously confirmed through successful endeavors.
3. Why did others contribute to Reiss’s success?
Bob Reiss had an alignment of experience, credibility, and knowledge. His foundation of experience commanded a level of attention to what he was talking about....

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 character goes on amath rampage that drives him crazy. Scieszka and Smith do a great job a combining mathematical concepts as well as rhymes and brain games. The book is continuously rhyming accompanied by humorous art work that gives the story a kind of flow. Want a little bit of a challenge? Try answering a number of math questions asked throughout the book. The math used consisted mainly of patterns if not basic math of a 3rd grader. Fractions were mentioned but as any 3rd grader would be our main character was terrified of them. So much so that he may have considered answering the question in French instead of math.
Overall the book seemed good for the target audience. There was appealing art work on each page, as well as rhymes. The Rhyming scheme made a big difference because it made the story have a sense of flow. Our authors also made the story interesting for an older more sophisticated audience with the introduction of Ms. Fibonacci who...

...Article Review 1
DeGeorge, B., 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 visualize the math concepts and gain knowledge because they understand what they’re learning a whole lot better and they also are able to gain insights on those concepts. Different examples of manipulatives may include counting with beans or M&M’s, using pattern blocks, puzzles, tangrams, and flash cards, just to name a few.
Using manipulatives in a math class are beneficial to both the student and the teacher because the teacher is able to explain the concepts to the students in a much easier manner using the hands-on technique, rather than explaining it verbally. It’s especially beneficial to the student because by incorporating these manipulatives into their learning process, they are able to pick up the concepts much quicker and in a way that they better understand, yet are having fun while doing it. When they have the concepts down, the students’ self-esteem goes up and they feel encouraged to keep on going.

...will not necessarily develop a similar mathematics.
The way they interplay is really interesting IMHO. For example, some mathematical concepts (like the aforementioned Riemann-Zeta function and the mathematics surrounding the irrational real number e), were mostly derived using forays into imaginary realm, and yet e is a huge part of modern 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 results in the next lessons. But I think the philosophical objections about infinity are as valid as they were in Cantor’s time. I also think that the successful application of set theory in math is no more a refutation than the success of science is of the critiques on induction. Even the success of Newton and Leibniz’s calculus failed to dispel suspicions about the infinitesimals. Actually, the limits interpretation, due to Cauchy, is a clever way of doing calculus without infinitesimals. The only reason why we bother with epsilon-delta proofs is just to avoid the controversial infinitesimal. Perhaps, we would also one day...

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 resists relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact and is subdivided into static friction between non-moving surfaces, and kinetic friction between moving surfaces; lubricated friction which is a case of fluid friction where a fluid separates two solid surfaces; skin friction which is a component of drag, the force resisting the motion of a fluid across the surface of a body; internal friction is the force resisting motion between the elements making up a solid material while it undergoes deformation and sliding friction.
When surfaces in contact move relative to each other, the friction between the two surfaces converts kinetic energy into heat. This property can have dramatic consequences, as illustrated by the use of friction created by rubbing pieces of wood together to start a fire. Kinetic energy is converted to heat whenever motion with friction occurs, for example when a viscous fluid is stirred. Another important consequence of many types of friction can be wear,...
