Pi shows up everywhere! What other number has played an important role in a famous Alfred Hitchcock movie, shown up in Sunday-morning comic strips, had a poem written about it by a winner of a Nobel Prize in Literature, and a song written about it by a 3-time Grammy-nominated musician? There are pi symphonies and pi limericks; pi art and pi tattoos. In this celebration of pi, let's explore why pi has come to be so important to so many people.

Our host, David Blatner will help us reveal these interesting facts! David is the author of "The Joy of Pi," "Spectrums: Our Mind-Boggling Universe From Infinitesimal to Infinity," and other books. You can learn more about him and pi at http://joyofpi.com

How It Works: 3 classrooms will compete to see who knows the most digits in Pi. Each teacher will be responsible for selecting 3 students to represent their classroom and recite the digits of Pi.  Interested in your classroom joining?  Fill out this form (http://goo.gl/XxfBE1) to indicate your interest.  Selected teachers will be contacted directly.  All grades welcome!

Great article about using masks in Photoshop! It's such an essential part of Photoshop, and too-little understood.
