Today is Pi Day everyone!  Jigsaw celebrated in style thanks to Monica’s famous Pi Pies!

Member Pat also brought in celebratory Pi fruits and Pi ice creams.

In all the fun, we noticed that one of Pat’s fruits laid across one of Monnica’s pies along the diameter nicely, and we decided to do a little measuring.  We found that the pie’s circumference was exactly 22 centimeters, and the fruit was just over 7 centimeters.  For some irrational reason, we can’t seem to exactly measure the fruit, but Michael’s promised to bring in a higher precision calliper which might do the trick.  In the mean time, here’s where we’re at so far with our equation:
