### π Day Let Down

I was so excited this week to celebrate Pi (π) (3.14159....).  And not just because I love making and eating pie.  This year I was going to teach the kids in 1st and 3rd grade about pi, and why 3.14159 is such an awesome number.

I pondered the circumference of the toilet bowl ($2 \pi r$) and the volume of a throw up bowl (πr2h) and even evaluated the area of circular vomit splatter  ($\pi r^2$).
