you need pi for other things, there is a reason to this, super geniuses.. you can use tau for 2xpi, no problem, but saying that you can forget about pi is nonsense, you would have to write 1/2 tau everytime you just need pi ;)

btw. never believe anything anyone using red black white colours tells you (and is bald headed...), they just try to change history for their financial advantages..

I`ve thought this way ever since pi was first explained to me. Unfortunately, it`ll never happen in the U.S. We can`t even manage to convince ourselves to convert to metric, which would have so many more beneficial results.

wait wait wait! so pi is wrong and the cake is a lie? what has this world come to? next thing you know the cookie monster will be eating veggies and fruit!

this would have made math so much easier for me in school. Maybe I might not have had to miss out on so much of it because i had to glue my nose in the f u k i n books all weekend long.

umm... no... It might be slightly more aesthetic for pure mathematics however when you jump to physics which requires the same level of beauty and simplicity this idea completely falls apart.

For those who have issues in math with angle measurements in radians just remember one circle = 360 degrees = 2pi rad. Also do yourself a favor and start estimating those 15% tips in your head whenever you go out to eat with your parents... it`ll make your life so much easier in math class.

Anything that involved a trigonomic function it would`ve been bad practice to use Hz as the frequency unit.

Funny thing is 1hz equals one entire wavelength in a second which would be that divided by 2pi in radians.

But for the sake of trigonometry lets run more numbers...

sine of pi = 0____________sine of tau = 0 sine of pi/2 = 1__________sine of tau/2 = 0 sine of pi/3 = sqrt(3)/2 _sine of tau/3 = sqrt(3)/2 sine of pi/4 = 1/sqrt(2)__sine tau/4 = 1

cosine of pi = -1__________cosine of tau = 1 cosine of pi/2 = 0_________cosine of tau/2 = -1 cosine of pi/3 = 1/2_______cosine of tau/3 = 1/2 cosine of pi/4 = 1/sqrt(2)_cosine of tau/4 = -1 any math wizz here can figure out tangents

you would have to write 1/2 tau everytime you just need

As this video demonstrates you`d only need that for calculating there area of a circle. Also the idea behind your graphic was already mentioned in this video. That is pi is equal to the circumference divided by the diameter of a circle.

I don`t understand, why he pauses at random, points in the sentence. It makes it, harder to follow when, he seemingly doesn`t have, a firm grasp of language and, wants me to follow, his direction.

That being said: I love pi but I am on the pro-tau side.

Meh, I like pi. It`s pretty arbitrary either way really. If multiplying by 2 is such an inconvenience and hindrance to your maths, you probably won`t be able to do the kind of maths where this would come into it anyway.

I see a future of tau that is then broken down into 2pi for "easy factoring". And then there will be a video decrying tau and that we should use 2pi so we can easily see "where the factor came from."

I know it cuz I`ve seen my friggin` math prof`s do it a thousand times over, and it confused me every time.

ok i am a math nerd and i have this to say - yes pi is the circumference divided by the diameter but when you go into all of the equations nobody thinks of pi as the number 3.14 instead they think of it as the rotation. when you rotate a strait line to form a circle the strait line is the radius not the diameter so half of the circle is pi and the full rotation is 2 pi .so really the 2 does not go to pi it goes to the radius to make it the diameter

- June 28 was Tau Day. Bet you didn`t know that. Mathletes, get ready to jizz in your pants.
oh god! its begun!

I sprained my brain-bone as well.
