I’m smart. Really.
I’ve never had anyone explain pi to me in a way that made any sense. I feel so stupid when I can’t grasp a new concept. I hate feeling stupid.
Steve is smart. He has an engineering degree and has taken advanced mathmatics. BUT, when I ask him about pi, he goes to another planet where another language is spoken. He starts talking about ratios and uses terms I’ve never heard and I blank out. It’s similar to the experiences I had in my math classes in school.
I have a friend, Alisan Royster, who is a math teacher. She was talking about celebrating Pi day on March 14th with her students. She was so animated and excited about it, I asked her if she could explain Pi to me.
Yesterday I had a light bulb moment!!!!! It was wonderful! I now know what Pi is and why I care and how I can use it in my life!!!!!!!
Alisan has a gift for making things clear. Her students are very lucky to have her as their teacher.
