Which reminded me of his first day of third grade - when his teacher called me in a panic at the end of the day. Being the sixth of our kids to go thru the school, he wasn't our first child to have her for a teacher, but he certainly was going to "present some challenges" she told me. I asked her what in the world he had done on the first day of school that was causing her such concern. She explained that she had each child write a paragraph about what they hoped to learn in the third grade - a fairly harmless question, but one that she was excited to read about on the first day, and then reflect back on the last day of school.

She queried him a bit further - did he want to know what pi was? "Nope" he told her, "I know what pi is. And I know the square root of pi. But I want to understand what the square root of pi MEANS." She was at a loss for words - and I knew that he was out of my math league as well.
