Having a short nerd in the house is comical at times. Earlier this week he drew the symbol for infinity (∞), but was unsure of its meaning. As I attempted to explain the dynamics of infinitesimal distance to a seven year old, I opted for an easier route and asked him to imagine a number that had no end; one that just went on and on and on…
“That’s easy”, he replied, “It’s Pi, isn’t it Daddy?”
So for all the mathematicians out there, old or young, big or small, nerdy or normal, here’s wishing all a very Happy Pi Day 2015.
