There are very many ways to expand numbers: binary expansion, decimal expansion, Lueroth Series, .... .
In this introductory talk we look at a very old and (in my eyes) beautiful way to expand numbers: continued fractions. I will show that with modest means one easily can get beautiful and strong results; results which are much stronger than the comparable ones for binary (or decimal) expansions.
