Today day has been different and awesome for me. Today I realized how important role Mathematics plays in this world and was superior some centuries ago than what it its today and that its impossible to find the value of pi.
When I looked at the newspaper in the morning and saw a pyramid from the time before Christ and how the giant structure was made beautifully with the accurate measurements of angles in it in such a way that it appears bright inside only 2 days in a year (the day of birth of the king whose mummy is kept in there and the date when he became the king.), I was mortified and wowed knowing the knowledge acquired by the ancient Greeks. After that I started to solve the problems relating to circle, hemispheres and prisms and then the “pi” came in the text and I started to think how might have the value been identified and the symbol was kept as “pi”.Then I looking for informations in the vast internet and search ed about the definition and founders of “pi”. There I came to know the contributions of many great mathematicians and computing geniuses like Archimedes, Issac Newton and many others. I read the whole content in about 1 hour but still, I couldn’t find what I was looking for.
What actually is “pi” and what is its value?
Since class 9, we have been learning pi, circle, radius etc… But till now, I never tried to know what pi actually is and when I tried to know what its actual value is, I came to know that there its no actual value of pi. There are tens and billions of values but no exact value for pi found till now.
Like other ,I also got excited and started to count the value of pi but I couldn’t reach much farther. I tried to use the formulaes invented by other mathematician but sucked in that too.Using some of my talent in computer programing, I made a small program and tried to find it out but I couldn’t go much farther.
Time started passing much faster and it was almost 6P.M. and I realized that I needed to study my course book.
Then what could I do?? I started solving mathematics problems and then I was able to score 96 out of 100. I was wowed since it was the first time I was able to score that high.
After finishing 2 sets of practice and from about 11PM, I started writing this post and its already 11: 30 now . Its time for sleep now. I need to wake up at 6AM.
