Pi Day!
Thursday, March 14, 2013

It's Pi day! That glorious and irrational holiday we celebrate by eating pie and doing math! Today I'm having a slice of Claim Jumper Turtle Pie, which is quite delicious.

Today's math challenge in honor of Pi day:

What is the duration of a piece of music in 4/4 time, having 118 measures, when played at a steady tempo of 96 beats per minute? Round to the nearest second.

4 min, 55 seconds. That's a lot of notes.
3-14-13, it's the same forward and backward, another palindrome!

Finally, brethren,
whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right and just,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable —
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy —
fix your mind on these things.
— Philippians 4:8
