Pi Day Pi Day - 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m!   The one day of year I can really show math my appreciation!  Since we all have a bit of geek in us don't forget to observe the BIG Pi day today: 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m.     Can recall what Pi is off the top of your head?    LEARN ABOUT PI   Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.The diameter of a circle is the distance from edge to edge, measuring straight through the center. The circumference of a circle is the distance around. HISTORY OF PI By measuring circular objects, it has always turned out that a circle is a little more than 3 times its width around. In the Old Testament of the Bible (1 Kings 7:23), a circular pool...

        My daughter has become good friends with a girl at her school who is a Jehovah Witness. It has been difficult to set up playdates because the other girl is only allowed to have them if they have a Jehovah witness to oversee them. I have been explaining to my daughter that this is all very normal for her friends religion and that together we can make it work so they can get together and be respectful of the limits sanctioned by her friends religion.    My crude -from memory and attempting to be of temporal scale- outline of the history of Judaism -> Time of Jesus -> Catholicism -> Protestant Movement (1500's) -> 2nd Protestant movement (1800's) Tonight we were discussing that and how the Jehovah Witness use a different translation of the bible than what her mother's church uses (King James Version).
