I was watching a television show and the substitute had a fantastic answer to the question "When will I ever use Pi in my life?" The answer given was awesome. He explained that Pi is an element number and it contains every telephone number, every birthdate, every price within its decimal answer. He said if you converted numbers to letters, it would contain every word you know.
That was such a profound answer that I may use it in my own classroom. It is a way of seeing Pi that I have never thought of.
I am still traveling and hope to post over the next few days.
