M410: How to find $$\pi$$ by throwing darts and using Python: Part A in Splash 2019 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Note: This is Part A of a two part course. Details below. Suppose you did not know that $$\pi$$ was 3.14..... How would you find it or at least a few digits of $$\pi$$ ? Come to this class and you can see how to find $$\pi$$ by throwing darts. We'll also teach a computer to throw darts using Python. This class aims to introduce how programming languages like Python can be used to find answers to mathematical questions. You do not need to know Python to enjoy this class. This is Part A of a two part course. In this part, we talk about probabilities, do some math on the board and then throw a few darts. You can also register for Part B which will be scheduled in the same room right after Part A. You will get to see the programming language Python being used to do some cool math. You have the option of registering for both courses or just one .
