So on Thursday, I was tutoring at homework club, and a student asked me for help with his math assignment. My degree is in Literature (Creative Writing Poetry) but somewhere, somehow, my cerebral cortex and left brain got super busy and synapses started firing and I was able to explain how to define a number as a rational number through showing an equation wherin that number was the quotient of two others. I remembered pi, 22/7 and that whole discussion from 20 years ago, about how pi was irrational and why, and was able to pull it out of my ass after “lo, these many years!” I was excited to be able to help.
