Oops, running a bit late for Sian's Storytelling Sunday this month - but hey, at least I made it!
I thought of telling the story of how we nearly-just-about saw the Olympic flame last week - but I'll save that one for now.
I thought of telling the story of our very British Jubilee picnic on Saturday - but I think I'll save that one, too.
I thought of telling you more about our recent holiday - but I didn't have time to sort through the photos, so I guess I'll have to save that one as well!
So instead, here's a video I came across this morning. Being a geeky mathematician type it made me laugh out loud, so I immediately thought of sharing it with you - hope you enjoy it, too!
And as it isn't really a story, I'll link it to the memory it recalls of my first experience teaching maths to an A-level class, while I was on my first teaching practice. I can't remember what the lesson was actually about, but at one point pi was mentioned and we discussed how many decimal places you'd need for different degrees of accuracy. The pupils asked me how many digits of pi I actually knew, and were very impressed when I was able to write it to 35 decimal places! (Feel free not to be impressed at all.... As I said, geeky mathematician type! Though, according to the vid, this maybe makes me more of a physicist - I'll leave you to discover why....)
