  • The Number of Lattice Squares*

    There are many puzzles about the number squares you can draw by using the grid points ( lattice points) on a given grid. Here is an example; The correct answer is not 9 (the number of 1x1 squares). There are many other squares you can create using the given points. These hard to catch tilted squares makes these puzzles interesting! Now we have a harder puzzle to work on! What is the total number of squares that can fit into an n x n grid? *Lattice squares are the squares whose vertices are on the grid points. There are two types of lattice squares, grid ones and the tilted ones. Let’s define a "grid square" as a square whose vertices are lattice points and sides are along the axis. (vertical squares). They are easy to create and have square number areas. A "tilted square" is a square whose vertices are still lattice points, but its sides are not along the axis. Tilted squares have whole number areas. The side length of a tilted square can easily be found by using the Pythagorean Theorem. Now, let’s have a look at a 3 x 3 squares and find the total number of grid and tilted squares that can be drawn using the lattice points. The number of grid squares that can be drawn is 9 +4 +1 = 14 Now, let’s find the number of tilted squares The number of tilted squares that can be drawn is 4 + 2 = 6. Then, the total number of lattice squares is 14 + 6 = 20 by using the points of a 3 x 3 grid. One may wonder if there is a short way of finding the number of squares for an n x n square. The questions we need to answer are; The number of grid squares in a n x n square The side length of the biggest tilted square that can be drawn in an n x n square The number of tilted squares in a n x n square The total number of lattice squares in an n x n square. Any relation among the number of tilted squares and grid squares We need to investigate all the possible squares carefully and record our findings systematically to be able to find answers to these questions. Here is a Polypad file you can work on to make drawings; You may need more grids to highlight to create different squares. Good luck! ------ ***------ SOLUTION We can start solving this puzzle by remembering another one! Famous" Checkerboard Puzzle". The answer of the Checkerboard Problem gives us the number of grid squares. To be able to find the total number of squares on a checkerboard, we need to consider that the board has 2 x 2 squares, 3 x 3 squares, 4 x 4 squares and so on other than 64 unit squares. If we organize our findings in a table. We may easily see that they follow the pattern of square numbers. Number of Grid squares in a n x n square; So for an n x n grid, the number of normal grid squares is simply the sum of the square numbers. One way to express the number of grid squares in an n x n grid is; When it comes to find the number of the tilted squares, we may discover different patterns. If you need an extra help for finding the side lengths of the tilted squares, you may have a look at the Square Areas on Grid Polypad Activity. When we organize the data for the tilted squares, one particular pattern can catch your eye. The number of √2 x √2 squares also follows the pattern of square numbers and so does 2√2 x 2√2 and 3√2 x 3√2 … The other tilted squares with the side lengths √5, √10, √13 … can be tricky to count. Be aware the symmetry of the square can make a different square now! √5 x √5 Example in a 4 x 4 grid square; There are 8 of them. If we have a closer look to 4 x 4 grid square, we see that there are 20 tilted square and 30 grid squares. Now, let’s have a look at the 5x5 case; Now there are 50 tilted squares and 55 grid squares. If you repeat the same steps for a 6 x 6 grid; We see that there are 105 tilted squares. You may realize that; In a n x n grid, the total number of grid squares and tilted squares, is equal to the number of tilted squares in a (n+1)×(n+1) grid. Now, let’s try to figure out the side length of the biggest tilted square that can fit into an n x n grid. Let “c” be the side length of the tilted square in a grid. By Pythagorean theorem a^2+b^2=c^2 and we also know that a+b can be at most n units long. a+b <= n For example in a 5 x 5 grid; you may draw “a+b” can never exceed the value of n. Let’s now try to write the side lengths of the tilted squares which will be added to the list for an 7x 7 grid. Find a + b <=7 the new values will be 6 +1 , 5+2 and 4+3 Now, let’s organize our findings about the tilted squares for each n x n grid; Here you may want to double check your results by comparing the patterns you have discovered before. Try to write the new values for 7x7 One way to express the number of tilted squares in a n x n square So the total number of lattice squares in a n x n grid can be found by These expressions can also prove our previous discovery about the total number of lattice squares in a n x n grid, the number of tilted squares in a (n+1)×(n+1) grid. One of the best outcomes of working on a problem like this is the beauty of the solution! Extension: Can we derive a formula for the total number of lattice squares in an n x m rectangular grid where n>m?

  • Atatürk ve Matematik

    10 Kasım Atatürk'ü anlamak için sadece savaş alanındaki dehasını yada devlet yaratma ve biçimlendirme becerisini konuşmak, okumak yetmez. Onun bilime ve eğitime verdiği değeri ve ülkemizin yeni nesillerinden beklentilerini anlamak da çok önemli. Bunu yaparken onun düşüncelerini ve fikirleri oluşturan deneyimlerini ve araştırmalarını, modern Türkiye'yi kurma amacıyla hangi kaynaklardan yararlandığını bilmek ve bu kaynaklara ulaşabilmek, onu anlamak yolunda ilk adım olabilir. Atatürk'ün hayatı boyunca 4000 kitaptan fazlasını okuduğunu biliyoruz. Atatürk'ün okuduğu kitapların, 1741'inin Çankaya Köşkü, 2151'nin Anıtkabir, 102'sinin İstanbul Üniversitesi Kütüphanesi ve 3'ünün ise Samsun İl Halk Kütüphanesi'nde olduğu biliniyor. Sadi Borak tarafından yazılan kısa metinde, Atatürk'ün bu kitapları okurken aldığı notlar şu şekilde açıklanmış; Bu 10 Kasım'da, O'nun fikirlerinin temellerini oluşturan kitaplara bir göz atalım. Bu kitapları okumak, onu anlamak yolunda, başkalarının fikirlerini dinlemek yerine atabileceğimiz en somut adım olacaktır. Aşağıdaki interaktif Google sınıfını buradan indirip, linklere ve videolara ulaşabilirsiniz. 23 Nisan Yakında .. 19 Mayıs Yakında .. 29 Ekim Yakında ..

  • Flextangles

    Flextangles are paper models with hidden faces. They were originally created by the mathematician "Arthur Stone" in 1939 and became famous when Martin Gardner published them in December 1956 issue of The Scientific American. Although you can find many different examples and ready to use templates on the web, the best method is to create your own template by using an interactive geometry software like GeoGebra. As a class activity creating flextangles by using a software can lead to discussions about translation and reflection. Flextangles, gizli yüzleri ortaya çıkarmak için esnetilebilen kağıt modellerdir. İlk olarak 1939'da Matematikçi Arthur Stone tarafından yaratılan flextangles, Martin Gardner'ın 1956 Aralık ayında The Scientific American'da yayınladığı makalede yeralınca, ünlü hale geldi. Webde bir çok örneğini ve taslak çizimlerini bulabileceğiniz flextangles için, GeoGebra gibi herhangi gibi geometri programı kullanarak kendi tasarımlarınızı da yaratabilirsiniz. Flextangle ları bir sınıf aktivitesi olarak program yardımıyla tasarladığınızda öteleme ve yansıma konularında da pratik sağlıyor.

By a channel STEM cell: https://youtu.be/ils7GZqp_iE By Doga Kurkcuoglu: http://bilimneguzellan.net/bouncing-cubes-and-%CF%80-3blue1brown/ And here's a lovely interactive built by GitHub user prajwalsouza after watching this video: https://prajwalsouza.github.io/Experiments/Colliding-Blocks.html NY Times blog post about this problem: https://wordplay.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/03/10/pi/ The original paper by Gregory Galperin: https://www.maths.tcd.ie/~lebed/Galperin.%20Playing%20pool%20with%20pi.pdf For anyone curious about if the tan(x) ≈ x approximation, being off by only a cubic error term, is actually close enough not to affect the final count, take a look at sections 9 and 10 of Galperin's paper. In short, it could break if there were some point where among the first 2N digits of pi, the last N of them were all 9's. This seems exceedingly unlikely, but it quite hard to disprove. Although I found the approach shown in this video independently, after the fact I found that Gary Antonick, who wrote the Numberplay blog referenced above, was the first to solve it this way. In some ways, I think this is the most natural approach one might take given the problem statement, as corroborated by the fact that many solutions people sent my way in this last week had this flavor. The Galperin solution you will see in the next video, though, involves a wonderfully creative perspective.

Two ways to support Mathologer Mathologer Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/mathologer Mathologer PayPal: paypal.me/mathologer (see the Patreon page for details) This video is my best shot at animating and explaining my favourite proof that pi is irrational. It is due to the Swiss mathematician Johann Lambert who published it over 250 years ago. The original write-up by Lambert is 58 pages long and definitely not for the faint of heart (http://www.kuttaka.org/~JHL/L1768b.pdf). On the other hand, among all the proofs of the irrationality of pi, Lambert's proof is probably the most "natural" one, the one that's easiest to motivate and explain, and one that's ideally suited for the sort of animations that I do. Anyway it's been an absolute killer to put this video together and overall this is probably the most ambitious topic I've tackled so far. I really hope that a lot of you will get something out of it. If you do please let me know :) Also, as usual, please consider contributing subtitles in your native language (English and Russian are under control, but everything else goes). One of the best short versions of Lambert's proof is contained in the book Autour du nombre pi by Jean-Pierre Lafon and Pierre Eymard. In particular, in it the authors calculate an explicit formula for the n-th partial fraction of Lambert's tan x formula; here is a scan with some highlighting by me: http://www.qedcat.com/misc/chopped.png Have a close look and you'll see that as n goes to infinity all the highlighted terms approach 1. What's left are the Maclaurin series for sin x on top and that for cos x at the bottom and this then goes a long way towards showing that those partial fractions really tend to tan x. There is a good summary of other proofs for the irrationality of pi on this wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proof_that_π_is_irrational Today's main t-shirt I got from from Zazzle: https://www.zazzle.com.au/25_dec_31_oct_t_shirt-235809979886007646 (there are lots of places that sell "HO cubed" t-shirts) lf you liked this video maybe also consider checking out some of my other videos on irrational and transcendental numbers and on continued fractions and other infinite expressions.
