Hi All, Hope you find of some interest how to teach children on highorder rootapproximating methods (at any desired convergence rate) based on the generalized mediant which is wellknown operation for Number theorists. No derivatives, no TrialError checks, No Geometry, but just the Simplest Arithmetic. Kindly take a look at the introduction on the new highorder methods for children at: https://domingogomezmorin.wordpress.com/ Best Regards,

are children generally in need of highorder rootapproximating methods?

Nevermind. OP is basically spam. Totally not for children. It's a link to his book.

Given a $P\in\mathbb{N+}$, to have it's cubic root Start from X=1, make the recoursive difference rising X using: M_3(x)=3X^23X+1 Example: P=27 271=26 267=19 1919=0 3 is the cubic root of 3

What about, say, the cube root of 2 Last edited by greg1313; March 7th, 2017 at 11:41 AM.
