  • One Million Digits of Pi.doc Thanks to Julie Einspahr and her students at Franklin Nebraska an error was discovered in this document. There are only 100,000 digits. I am not for sure where this document came from but an error was discovered. My students were looking at the printout of the 1 million digits of pi that was in the march nmpds folder. Are you aware that there are actually only 100,000 digits in that document? There are 110 characters per row with 72 row on a page, which is 7920 characters per page. There would have had to been 126.26 pages to contain 1,000,000 digits.

  • Music is used to help memorize digits of pi. This is a song I wrote to help me memorize π, since I can memorize music easier than strings of numbers. In my mind, I can hear the melody, and figure out the numbers.
