The Day Of The Humble π

(7)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 1:59 pm (Singapore time)
The Sign of π
All hail The Magnificent π

If you happen to be a PSLE student who’s stuck trying to calculate the area of that circle today, or if you’re an O-Level student who keep getting that arc length wrong because you always forget to convert the sector angle into radians

Stop now, take a break, and wait till the digital clock strikes 1.59PM 26.5 sec.

That’s when a certain mathematical symbol will glow in your text book, as you’ll suddenly feel your mathematical skills (particularly those involving circles) going up by 3.14159265 times, and everyone’s TOTO chances increases by 3.14159265%, and when the circumference of Miss Loi’s waist hopefully decreases by 3.14159265 inches (on second thoughts, that’s probably not a very good idea).

In any case,

And as part of The Temple‘s Pi Day celebrations, any student who uses π = 22/7 in their workings today will be made to recite the value of this most famous irrational number for up to 50 decimal places, and watch this lame video a hundred times :P

P.S. This post was timed to be published at 1.59PM, but apparently the real Pi-Moment should be (respectfully) 1.59AM instead. Oh well … Miss Loi shall have to wait till next year to atone for her sin and exercise her filial π-ty.

P.P.S. And today happens to be a student’s birthday too! Happy Birthday! So can Miss Loi assume that she’ll never see a mistake from you in questions containing π? :P

頑張って!!!

    Selamat Malam Pak Arie. 转眼间 (with the turn of an eye) it's amazing that it's now π+7 days!

    Time really passes irrationally fast - especially when Miss Loi's been bogged down by work :(

    Actually there is a lot of mystery and secrets that lie within pi π. I am still waiting for someone that is good in maths like Miss Loi to point me to the right path as I am not good with maths although I love it.

    That's the problem of being lazy while in my secondary school.

    Now a little (actually much more) regret seeing and knowing maths are the universal language that God had created. Basically all things can be describe in maths; ie. an aeroplane, a moving car, the spiral galaxy, or even the magical ratio of the distance between the earth and our moon.

    alas, if and only if i understand how to decipher maths like Miss Loi.

    Good work done here. I will constantly keep checking your blog. I also had a version of pi song at my blog.
