]]>I was working at a Math Camp for Urban Girls this past week, and of course the topic of pi r^2 came up, and we trotted out the cliche “No, pies are round!”

You have a great website/blog, here!

]]>*‘Gentlemen, welcome to Maths Club. The first rule of Maths club is, you do not talk about Maths Club. The second rule of Maths club is, you do not talk about Maths Club. The third rule of Maths club, someone yells stop, goes limp, taps out, the problem’s over. Fourth rule, only two guys to a problem. Fifth rule, one problem at a time fellas. Sixth rule, no physics no stats. Seventh rule, problems will go on as long as they have to. And the eigth and final rule, if this is your first night at Maths Club, you have to do maths.’*

Damn if only such a thing existed! (I’m particularly liking the sound of no physics and no stats!):D
