Happy Pi Day all! What is Pi day you ask? Well, it is a holiday that if not made up by was at least celebrated by my second daughter's pre-cal teacher many years ago when we lived in Houston. Genius! First of all genius to even be taking a pre-cal class...total genius to be a pre-cal teacher and totally genius to come up with or at least celebrate math...I mean what better way to get kids fired up about math than to ply them with pie! Why today? Think about the date for a second. Now, my younger children all waited with anticipation for their math teachers to celebrate as well. Awaited to no avail, I might add. Now my youngest daughter is a number loving as well as a pie loving person and insisted that we take matter into our own hands this year....sooooo at 3:14 this afternoon (no, I was not dedicated enough to get up at 3:14 am) we will be sitting down and enjoying a yummy piece of pie and celebrating pi!
**Soooooo...if the diameter of our pie is 9"...what is the circumference? The area? I have no idea...I'll have to go wake up my daughter and find out! haha! If you care to figure it out remember circumference=diameter times pi and area=pi times the radius(1/2 the diameter) squared.
In the event you would like to celebrate this holiday too...(I mean any excuse to eat pie, right?) here is the recipe again for my apple pie:
Have a sweet day!!
