The Carnival of Π

Rather than write something clever about π for Π day, I’ve chosen to (rather lamely) assemble links to blogs in my reader that were more creative than I was.

Andrée, in northern Vermont, who lost part of her job (reduction in hours) as a math teacher has kept her spirits up (go, look at her photography, please), and has given us for Π day both a pi-comic and a humorous pi-video (that I can’t get to play).

Zeno channels Dostoevsky channelling the Da Vinci code on Π at Halfway There.

Π day photo that I just don’t get. I think they are characters from a detective show (or was it a sitcom?) set in Hawaii.

The day before she put up some suggestions for Π day activities, “Things that equal π

Kate(t) boasts about that her school does a great Π day, which is kind of her, since all the evidence points to a great Π day taking place in Kate’s class. Extra kudos for including a map, and teaching her kidlets about the “other” Syracuse…

Denise at Let’s Play Math did a me, and posted a picture of a gorgeous π pie, and some links. She’s also got an ad for a key lime pi t-shirt, which is just too cute. (with image).

Update!  I missed Dave Marain’s pi-links at Math Notations. He did them a few days in advance… which is how I overlooked them.

And that’s all I found in my reader this year.

    Glad you could sneak something into the comments! Foxy, does yours overlap with “things that equal π” ?

    p.s. that’s magnum, p, i (as in “private investigator”). i think.

    i’d like to *think* i’ll have quit mathblogging by then.
    but every blog i shut down seems to spawn two others
    (like heads of the hydra). next quarter’s are already started…

    I’d be happy to host one next year if someone reminds me ;-)
