     Slicing a pie (pizza or other) would be an interesting way to teach fractions. The students would just eat it up!

These all sound great as learning incentives and as delicious as they all are, I think for me being a mature student, I would prefer …..



Fur Pi served on a pizza Pi.  :P   


Since fractions were mentioned, let's run with that concept for a minute :evil: 

To start of with we're never going to slice the fur Pi. Since its on top, it is the Numerator and we can express it as: (1*Pi) or simply Pi. However the Denominator (the Pi on the bottom) can be sliced into any number of slices. So let's express that as: (n*Pi), where "n" is the number of slices the Denominator consists of. Put together, the general form of the fraction can be expressed as: (Pi/n*Pi). Since (Pi/Pi) = 1 we can simplify the general fraction to its final form: (1/n*1). 

Since there is only one full size slice of each in my illustration photo, we can further simplify the fraction to:  (Pi/Pi) or (1/1) and since (1/1) = 1, the value of the fraction comes to: 1.

Um, wait a minute. ::) I see two distinct pieces of "Pi" in the picture. One on top of the other. So how the heck do two pieces of Pi equal one ???  :whistle:  :P



Oh man! What the heck was Ceej on, or smokin today? :whistle:



Ok, sorry for the line of long winded silliness, I just couldn't resist.  :P
I think I'm gonna have that last can of Summer Shandy to go along with my "Pi's".   :P
"Leaving it to the imagination" is highly overrated.
