I teach 7th grade math & we have a pi day celebration (this year we did it on 3.12 since 3.14 was on a Sunday) We have the students bring pie, and have a bunch of different pi day activities & contests. Math nerds unite!! :)mel @ the larson lingohttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06609533871423094530noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2712326975338837060.post-60810490094865070732010-03-17T12:53:50.710-05:002010-03-17T12:53:50.710-05:00My baby sis-in-law (used to) know pi to 300 digits...My baby sis-in-law (used to) know pi to 300 digits...ummm yeah.

We saw Alice on Friday and it was great.<br /><br />Darci--I hope you did that cheer several times yesterday!<br /><br />Ally--Basically, the math is too elegant for there not to be a creator who designed those numbers to combine the way they do. <br /><br />Al--Thanks pal.

I can divide that circle with a fork and hope it doesn't go to my diameter which is anything but constant ; o ). <br /> <br />Is there a logarithmic relationship for π? Hapπ π Day! <br /><br />Celebrate by going to Alice in Wonderland because Lewis Carroll was a mathematician who added mathematical commentary to his stories about Alice and who loved riddles.Maryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14095813906652150779noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2712326975338837060.post-55834025042207679302010-03-14T13:59:06.421-05:002010-03-14T13:59:06.421-05:00Fun fact of the day from my favorite economics blo...Fun fact of the day from my favorite economics blog (that's right, I read economics blogs too): MIT releases its undergraduate admission decisions at 1:59 pm today. (That is, at 3.14159). Maybe if Finley grows to share his mother's love of pi, he should apply there. Or culinary school.Kennethhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08851810570467871745noreply@blogger.com
