Pi Day Pie and Baking Math
And now for something completely different! When I am not exploring math education or writing fiction, I love to make things. This includes everything from cooking to needle felting to making jewelry. So when instructables.com opened their Pi Day pie contest, I had to enter.
Creating my entry required a great deal of calculation, from halving or quartering recipes to guesstimating how long it would take to bake this unique cookie, cake, and ice cream pie. Fortunately, I’ve had lots of experience with estimation, and I couldn’t have hoped for this pie to turn out better. My friends who shared it loved it too.
If you’d like to see the pie and hopefully vote for it, please head on over to this page. There are also lots of other fabulous entries, and you can vote as often as you’d like. Enjoy!
