Because the academic well-being of middle schoolers is so closely linked to their social well-being, the best middle school curricula teach kids coping mechanisms that can be applied both to completing schoolwork and to navigating adolescent friendships and dating. In one promising program, Habits of Mind, teachers work with students to develop skills such as “applying past knowledge to new situations,” “admitting you don’t know,” “listening with understanding and empathy,” “taking responsible risks,” and even “being able to laugh at yourself.” Schools as disparate as Briarcliff Middle School, in the affluent New York suburb of Briarcliff Manor, and the KIPP schools, which serve mostly low-income black and Hispanic children, are embracing this type of character education, which is based on research showing that non-cognitive skills like perseverance and future orientation can be more important than raw IQ in determining adult success.

This legitimately upsets me.

… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.

So you might end up with more donuts.

But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?

Hrm.

HRM.

A round donut with radius R

_{1}occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R_{1}. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R_{2}and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R_{2}, then the area of a round donut is πR_{1}^{2}- πr_{2}^{2}. The area of a square donut would be then 4R_{1}^{2}- 4R_{2}^{2}. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.

The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R_{2}= R_{1}/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR_{1}^{2}/16 ≃ 2,94R_{1}^{2}, square: 15R_{1}^{2}/4 = 3,75R_{1}^{2}). Now, assuming a large center hole (R_{2}= 3R_{1}/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR_{1}^{2}/16 ≃ 1,37R_{1}^{2}, square: 7R_{1}^{2}/4 = 1,75R_{1}^{2}). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.

tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.god i love this site

can’t argue with science. Heretofore, I want my donuts square.

more donut per donutThis is why math is so important!
