Math Sub

I subbed as a high school math teacher today, and I learned a few things:

Kids were bringing in pies, and they said that it was for "Pie Day." It wasn't until 6th hour that I realized that it was "Pi Day." Get it? 3/14? Yeah, that was my reaction, too.

I also found out about the conchoid of Nicomedes, the kampyle of Eudoxus, and the Tschirnhausen cubic. Don't ask me about any theoretical or practical applications of those things.
