Write your first code letter to Santa

Contest ended 3rd January 2017

 

Christmas is getting closer! Help Santa sort presents, fill toy sacks and then find his way to children from all around the globe. They’re waiting for their presents, but Santa can’t make it if you don’t develop an algorithm in order to help him solve his logistics problems.

As you can imagine, because he has millions of homes to visit in just one night, he needs a really smart route plan. However, he faces a challenge: how to identify the highest chimney he can reach.

Pi versus Tau, the math match of the year

Contest ended 29th June 2016

 

What’s all of this about?

You’re probably already familiar with Pi, the famous math constant that keeps popping up in every mathematical formula out there. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. But you already knew that, right?

Well, what you also need to know is that Pi has a ferocious enemy: Tau. Tau is approximately 6.28, which basically means that Tau = 2 x Pi (because, you know, Pi equals approx. 3.14).

As today is Tau Day (Yey!), we’ve decided to organize what will remain in history as the math match of the year and invite on stage both numbers and see who’s the toughest after all: Pi or Tau? A bit geeky? Sure, but we love geekiness. A bit violent? Definitely, but don’t you just love it when two mathematical constants are getting into a fight?

Now choose your side and solve the challenge!
