Happy Pi Day – 3.14 (March 14)




Well, in true nerd fashion, I have been acutely aware that today is Pi Day all day (acute-ly….  Get it?).  Working in a school where we had a pie-eating contest and multiple Math projects, I spent my day wishing I had pie, chocolate with an oreo cookie crust preferably, and thinking about my days of math as a student.


I had a series of fantastic math teachers (with maybe a gap year or two),  but I wouldn’t exaaaaactly say any of them were particularly funny or into math puns.  If I were a math teacher, I would totally incorporate as many jokes into my math pedagogy as possible (you’re welcome, Katie).

Now, I haven’t taken a math class since freshman year of college…  so 2001.  And many of the math jokes I looked up for your viewing pleasure today were way over my head (clearly Calculus I and II were unnecessary).  But I didn’t find some that tickled my funny bone.

Here are some samples:

Q: Why is a math book always unhappy?
A: Because it always has lots of problems.

Q: What do you call friends who love math?
A: algebros


Really, any excuse to reference pirates.  Mwahahaha….

If you’re into math, check out these nerdy math jokes!



Now on to actual pie.  I like pie.  I wouldn’t say I love it.  I find pie uber heavy, and really I find that the crust can make or break the pie.  Graham cracker crust?  Yes. Here are some gourmet pies for your drooling pleasure.



Pi Day gifts for that special someone?


(I just want to say that I am proud of myself for understanding what that Tshirt means…  thanks Mrs. Flenniken!)
