Getting a slice of pi! :roflhard:
I kept getting a left over of 1.26 and thinking that meant ten slices but then realized that is how long the "arc" of crust would be on the partial slice after 9 slices were cut with 3 inch "arcs" (i.e. 3 inch wide slice of the pie.
Now I can use pi on the pies for our family to keep the children from fighting (well at least lessen the chances of if). Most of the time we cut the pizza, pie, or cake in eight slices because it is easy. You divide in half four times; now I can measure the diameter and then divide the circumference by six (two parents and four children) and we each get two pieces (a piece to eat and also peace to share!)
I can't give advice on doing math because I'm one of those 'classmates' everyone hated in school for ruining the grading curve. :oops:
But billiards (pool) and playing a musical instrument both exercise your brain for math. In fact, if you play billiards, simply watching how the balls react you learn what would take complex geometry equations to figure out on paper.
I think Origami also helps with division...
Sorry, I'll stop now before the needles start to fly.[/color]
