Let's get it started!

This is the first post on our blog's wall!!

I really hope this experiment we are starting fits well on your (sometimes) fuzzy minds :P

Today we've learnt about the irrational numbers (those numbers that can't be represented as a fraction). Do you remember the example we've worked with?

I'm not going to repeat here the demonstration I told you this morning, I only intended to show you that working with maths doesn't only concern to operations with numbers: there's a huge math-world to explore out there! And by math-world I mean there are many things which can't be explained using anything but mathematics:




(BTW, did you know that Futurama's screenwriters are indeed mathematicians, physicists and engineers? I promise I'll tell you about the hilarious maths-jokes you can find in this series)


So, don't forget about the DIN-A shaped sheets and the DIN-spiral!
 

I would like to finish this post with this incredible animated video showing, among others, the Fibonacci spiral (the one I told you that is quite a lot "smoother" than the DIN-A).



ENJOY YOURSELVES!
