Biblical Christian World View: Liberation for Leadership

The works of the Lord are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them (Psalm 111:2).

Mathematical Circles: Quadrant II

Pi

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Howard Eves (1911-2004), professor of mathematics at University of Maine, wrote a series of books entitled "In Mathematical Circles." He used the division of a circle into 360 degrees to write 360 short essays exposing the variegated beauties, history, people, humor, and applications of mathematics. On this page, James Nickel will follow the same structure with the goal of unveiling the vistas and power of mathematics as seen through Biblical Christian eyes.
