Maths Marvels PPT

Hello guys...
As you must be aware that HRD Ministry of India has launched the CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive 


Evaluation ) education system in Class IX and according to this the student has to do seminars, 


articles, debates and many more things other than the usual exams...






I was also told by my teachers to make a PPT presentation on any topic related to maths so I 


made a presentation on Maths Marvels and I want to share it with you. Please download it and 


tell me how is it.

A new problem is there in front of the Scientists. Now a day's our electronic devices computation capabilities are increased enormously beyond the present computation system. Scientists are having a new problem like finding the new name for the 
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Scientists are lobbying for a new word to help them describe numbers larger than 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 amid concerns that the current system of units is insufficient.

A campaign for "hella" to join the likes of "kilo", "mega" and "giga" as an internationally accepted prefix is attracting growing support.
More than 20,000 scientists, students and members of the public have signed an online petition backing the new quantity, which would be used for figures with 27 zeros after the first digit.
Currently the highest prefix allowed by the International System of Units (SI) is the "yotta", for 24 zeroes.
The amount of energy released by the Sun would be more elegantly expressed as 0.3 hellawatts than as 300yottawatts.
Hella is North Californian slang for "very" or "a lot of". Mr Sendek and his supporters argue that its adoption would be a fitting honour for the state's impressive record of scientific research.
If the change is approved, the hella would be the first new SI prefix introduced since 1991, when the International Committee for Weights and Measures approved yotta and zetta (21 zeroes).


FULL LIST OF SI PREFIXES


10 = deca

100 = hecto

1,000 = kilo

1,000,000 = mega

1,000,000,000 = giga

1,000,000,000,000 = tera

1,000,000,000,000,000 = peta

1,000,000,000,000,000,000 = exa

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 = zetta

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 = yotta

awayein, patte, pani, per, jungle, sabz sona hain...
Hawayein, patte, pani, per, jungle, sabz sona hain..
Agar tum ho to itna hi zaroori inka hona hai

Hawayein maili mat karna ki jab tum saans loge
Ye dum wapas nahin ayega jab tum khaans loge

Per ugaao, chanon hawayein, saaf karo
Apni zameen se itna to insaaf karo
