Oh, & I've seen round cornbread. How about "brownie are square"?

http://www.wnyc.org/story/275748-open-phones-pi-day/#comment425282Yeah the relation between baking and math is the same for me as the caller, when you have an amount of one ingredient that isn't enough I have to figure out the amount of the rest of the ingredients and usually ending up just eyeing it and I've been lucky (nyeh!) wit the results. I love math but really suck at it. Took Geometry 3 times in HS>

http://www.wnyc.org/story/275748-open-phones-pi-day/#comment425280My son's school has cooking as part of the curriculum. He's been cooking and baking with "Granny" since preschool. When his teachers introduced fractions this year in kindergarten it was no big deal - he had already been using them and seen their importance in cooking.

http://www.wnyc.org/story/275748-open-phones-pi-day/#comment425274Let us remember that most pies are round, and pi is the relationship between the circumference or area of a circle to its radius or circumference, respectively. That being said, I'm such a math fan that I'm baking quick drop biscuits instead.

http://www.wnyc.org/story/275748-open-phones-pi-day/#comment425271If they taught more pie-making in high school rather than trying to cram algebra and Euclidean geometry into the heads of kids who have no interest in it, we'd have better bakers AND better mathematicians. The kids who are interested in PIE only drag down the kids interested in Pi.

* actually duck fat is healthier than butter believe it or not!
