Exercise idea - calculate PI using map/reduce

It’s not a hard requirement per se, but rather a… sort of firm and getting firmer requirement. (The more I wrestle with reverse engineering stories, the firmer this requirement seems to get).

It’s very likely that we’ll deprecate some of the existing exercises later, if we can’t get a decent story for them.

My sense is that if we can find a down to earth (-ish) story here, then we can consider it, but without it I would prefer not to.

How about calculating Pi using a different approach? Like the one below

Playing Darts and Estimating Pi

To save on frustration, perhaps consider immediately asking about math exercies on the forum?

Yeah, that’s going to be my new strategy :-)
