Approximations of e and ?: An Exploration
Brown, Philip R.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 suppl 1 pS30-S39 2017
Fractional approximations of e and p are discovered by searching for repetitions or partial repetitions of digit strings in their expansions in different number bases. The discovery of such fractional approximations is suggested for students and teachers as an entry point into mathematics research.
