Video: The Pi Episode by Danica McKellar and Nerdist
Major thanks to Dr. Cliff Pickover for posting the link to this awesome video on my Twitter feed. On January 9, 2014, Danica McKellar premiered her YouTube show "Math Bites". The first show is all about pi (π). OK, they talk about pie too, but the main focus is one the famous number.
From memory, I know π = 3.14159265353897923846... (I think that's right). Anyway, click on the link and enjoy!
And not only my favorite number is π, my favorite pie is apple, especially if it has cinnamon with a crust on top.
