Take a Pi to the Face with Math Bites!

Actress turned mathematician Danica McKeller has come out with a new video series called Math Bites. The first episode is focused on everything pi! Via Nerdist.

Ready for a piping-hot slice of pi? Of course you are! Last month you bathed in the irrational goodness of the Dance of the Sugar Pi Fairy, and as promised, today is the series premiere of actress and bestselling author Danica McKellar’s Math Bites, a brand new series on the Nerdist Channel that kicks ass, solves for X, and chews bubblegum! And Math Bites is all out of bubblegum.

Studies show that 99% of humans hate math. Danica McKellar (Math Doesn’t Suck, Kiss My Math) is the other 1%. Math Bites is exactly what it sounds like — bite-sized bits of mathematical magic that are easy to digest so you won’t wind up like the protagonist of Darren Aronofsky’s Pi. Speaking of pi, today’s episode focuses on the mysteries of everyone’s favorite irrational number and seeks to take the daunting, never-ending number and make it so you not only understand it, but can sing its digits to 139 places. Bet your SAT prep course didn’t cover that.
