Saturday the 14th was the name of a really corny B movie for kids. The movie was bad, but the pun is
just too tempting.
3.1415, or 22/7?? (March 14, 2015)
It's a silly day but kind of fun because for the most part, America views mathematics as a non fun thing and impractical; that is, unless you are a math geek.
I am not.
You are never too old to learn
If something is practical and useful, people will learn it (provided they want to)
Math is all about solving problems (provided we remember the second rule)
- The area of a circle
- The diameter of a circle
- Any area or volume of a given object
- The amount of wire on a spool or coil (with a small margin of error)
- The amount of material needed to cover or build something
It has a deep practical application if we will but take the time to learn. We can actually walk away smarter, better informed, and having made a better decision than if we had otherwise ignored the sage advice.
Now, the Bible and Word of God are of infinitely more value, but can we not glean an understating of the importance of The Word of God from the simple (or not so simple things in mathematics) things around us?
