Do you "get" this song?

Perhaps you remember me mentioning a while back that Den and I recently watched all the episodes of The Wonder Years. Since then I found Danica McKellar's blog (she played Winnie) and I realize she is BIG time into MATH. So she made this video last month and two things about it stand out to me:

1. Danica has not changed much in 25 years!
2. She not only sings and dances in this 2 minute video, but she wrote the song.
3. I don't understand what she is singing about. 


So I think I will dedicate this post to my two actuary sons.
Perhaps they understand singing about Pi?



If this makes sense to anyone, please do let me know.

I'm having lots of that lately. Do you mind trying again?

My favorite "Pi" is the one with apple, cherries, or pumpkin.

I don't understand anything Pi. just that it is never ending. Yes, gotta love Winnie! She has also written several math books. I have been thinking about getting them for Hannah when she starts getting into the harder Math...because there is no way I will be able to help her...maybe she won't need help. She is already starting geometry and algebra, and I barely remember any of that.

I think the Pi song is very cute and clever. Totally got it. Wouldn't it be amazing if children could learn it (or most of it) in school? Since you are such a great cook and always looking for new recipes, perhaps you were thinking more about food than math. Anyway, here is a "Pi" puzzle for you; it contains 7 familiar number sequences. What are they?

Sorry Pam, but my brain does not work like that. I didn't know yours did…..impressive!

Ammy~ You barely remember algebra and geometry? I don't remember them at all. Algebra was the only class i couldn't even pass without a repeat of it in summer school.

Perfect sense.

Pi and I don't compute.
