A Modern Approach to Computing the Digits of Pi Archimedes was the first mathematician to develop a converging series approximation to &pi;. That highly influential discovery guided the development of calculus many hundreds of years later. However, his method only gives lower and upper boundaries that form intervals known to capture &pi;, not a single numeric estimate of &pi;. In this lesson, students ask, “Where is &pi; located in those intervals?” They also discover an improvement to Archimedes' method that generates the infinite digits of &pi; more efficiently and accurately.
