Does This Post Make Me Look Smart?

Yes, Spock, the value of Pi is most definitely a transcendental figure without resolution. Yeah, that's it.....that is just what I was going to say. [cough, cough]

Sadly, the truth is that the last time one of my kids asked me to help them with their math homework, I had a meltdown that sounded strangely similar to Spock's computer on this clip. It was my youngest child, and she was in 3rd grade.

3.14...........Happy Pi Day Anyway.

(In honor of my oldest daughter who, in spite of my "stellar" math tutoring skills, is now an Industrial Engineering major. Apparently, that little apple fell far, far from the tree.)

Genius! The most brilliant segment of genius is knowing what part you are not genius. You can use this quote if you want....obviously, I went to the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too.

Math is not my forte`. I tell my kids I will help with any homework BUT math. The schools do not even teach the basic things the same way I learned it all.
I love to study history and social studies.
Dad is the math homework guy in our house.

Thanks so much for the visit and comments. I am with you all the way on the kleenex box I showed!! I would think kids would really rather use their sleeve than pull a tissue from that box!!

Ah, you do have a wonderful way with words--I enjoyed this post very much. Oh, and I was a HUGE Star Trek fan when I was in 8th grade--forget handsome Captain Jerk, er Kirk, I was in love with Mr. Spock back then!!!!!

LOL I love this post! My wife is a statistics major and she said Pi IS a transcendental with no resolution... yet.

We were married on Pi day. Thought noone else knew about it lol!
