When the Spanish took control and colonized the Philippines beginning in 1571, many revolts and uprisings took place during that time. The main objectives that the Spanish had in taking over the Philippines were to convert the Filipinos to Christianity and to colonize the country for their own benefits. It wasn’t until three centuries later that the people of the Philippines realized they needed to form a massive revolt against the Spaniards. In this final attempt as the Filipinos all were once again reunited they were able to gain back their independence and land.

The two main reasons for the Indio uprisings between this period was because of the different types of oppression and exploitation people of the Philippines constantly faced. One of the many uprisings were led by Diego Silang who fought against tax collection and abuses. The importance of his uprising was its spread to two different provinces with the help of English troops that were occupying Manila at the time. After Silang’s death, his with Gabriela continued fighting against the Spaniards.

In many cases, the real rulers of the Philippines were the Spanish friars. They were able to wield their powers by forcing people to believe religion and their faith was the answer behind everything. The major roles of these friars were to convert their religion to Christianity while teaching them the basics of European civilization. They exploited their power in the Philippines by raping women because they supposedly would be freed from sin, suppression of education, cruel treatment of tenants, and they taking advantage of their amount of food by consuming more than they should. When people/ barangays rose up and tried to fight for their rights the friars would kill that person and send their body down a river to frighten people.

The ilustrados role in creating a national identity for the Philippines was to show them how they were being treated unfairly and what they were doing wrong. They made the Indios,...

...π (sometimes written pi) is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter in the Euclidean plane; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius. It is approximately equal to 3.14159265 in the usual decimal notation. Many formulae from mathematics, science, and engineering involve π, which makes it one of the most important mathematical constants.
π is an irrational number, which means that...

...The History of Pi
The History of Pi
Most individuals who have a general mathematical education that touches on the basics of geometry commonly know pi. The definition of pi is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of the circle (Smoller, 2001). The majority of the population, however, does not realize the history associated with the symbol, which not only spans throughout the centuries but throughout the millenniums. The...

...What is π?
Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines π as "1: the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet... 2 a: the symbol pi denoting the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter b: the ratio itself: a transcendental number having a value to eight decimal places of 3.14159265"
A number can be placed into several categories based on its properties. Is it prime or composite? Is it imaginary or real? Is it transcendental or algebraic? These questions help define a...

...very interesting for maths.
Father : (Interrupting and getting up from the chair)
What did you learn today, Ahmed?
Ahmed : How to find the area of a circle by using a formula pi x r2
Mohamed : What is pi?
Ahmed : It is a value 22/7.
Father : Do you like to know about the person who discovered pi?
Ahmed & Mohamed : Oh! Yes father.
Father : (sitting on a chair, Mohamed and Ahmed sitting on the floor)
The person who...

...History of Pi
There are many people who have discovered and proved what pi is. As time goes on people discover more and more of the seemingly random numbers. Four of the people who proved pi are the Liu Hui, Archimedes of Syracuse, James Gregory, and the Bible.
The first proof I will be talking about is Liu Hui’s. Liu Hui was a Chinese mathematician whose method for proving pi was to find the area of a polygon inscribed in a...

...Pi has always been an interesting concept to me. A number that is infinitely being calculated seems almost unbelievable. This number has perplexed many for years and years, yet it is such an essential part of many peoples lives. It has become such a popular phenomenon that there is even a day named after it, March 14th (3/14) of every year! It is used to find the area or perimeter of circles, and used in our every day lives. Pi is used in things such as engineering...

...Pi is an ancient and wonderful Number to the World of Mathematics invented with the Geometrical structure Circle.
CIRCLE
It is felt that the creation of the Circle is not created by the man himself but came through the inspiration of Nature itself. The shape of Sun, Full Moon, Eyes are some examples for it.
Some basic things :
There are 3 major parts to remember.
Radius : The straight line drawn to the Circumference of the...
