Important Mathematical Constants
This week you were introduced to the natural number e ≈ 2.718. In mathematics there are several important numbers similar to e. You are likely familiar with the constant pi ≈ 3.14. For example: You are likely familiar with the constant pi ≈ 3.14.
- Do some research on either one of these two numbers, or, better yet, find another very important number in mathematics.
- Share with us what you have found out about the number, for example, its history, some trivial facts about the number, and/or how it is applied.
