Happy Pi Day, friends! One of my ex-students who also became a math teacher gave me this Pi Pie Plate several years ago. I treasure it and love to wish friends "Happy Pi Day!" My son-in-law is finishing his math and science degree to teach and he beat me to the punch sending me Pi greetings. Pi is almost 3.14 Today is 3.14
Hurray for two more geeks or at least one geek and an enabler.LOL For the last ten years I appliqued and quilted a wallhanging of digits of pi. It was 12 inches tall and over 50 feet long. I collected fabrics for a year that would be appropriate in a pie (apples, cherries, eggs, chickens, etc) I never pointed out the banner and it was hilarious when the light came on for a student while looking at it. Many of those students would memorize it and proudly show off their knowledge. When I retired I gave that banner to the ex-student who had given me the pi plate. I knew it would be well loved by a high school geometry teacher.
On the news last night a school in the northeast Texas area served pizza PIE and apple PIE to anyone who could come in and rattle off any of the numbers. One person got up to over 100 digits! Not being mathematical minded I have trouble remembering the first THREE!
