Date with π

Message from the math department at my school:

π=3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062…

How many decimal places of π can you remember?

Two? 3.14, that is very normal.

Five? 3.14159, that is marvelous.

But you can easily remember 9 decimal places like a genius.

This only happens once in our life: 3/14/15, 9:26:53, or 3.141592653, your centennial appointment with π.

Latest Graduate School Project

As some of you know, I am back in graduate school after a twenty-five year hiatus.  Over the winter break, I decided to take a mini-course in Digital Storytelling.  My blogging has been pretty spotty since I returned to school in August, so I decided to share some of my work in this course (and possibly more later) here on my blog.  You can find all the background and details about my Digital Storytelling project under the Writing Projects tab above.
