Skip to comments.Pi Day Special: Common Core for the Common Man
Posted on 03/14/2015 8:09:27 AM PDT by NOBO2012
As a special Pi ("π") Day tribute to Common Core math, Ive developed a little CC story problem for you to solve:
Air Force Won leaves Washington D.C., flying west at 540 miles/hour. On board are Big Guy, TOTUS, twenty-one (21) SS Storm Troopers and the Beast (not that one, the car).
Thirty (30) minutes later, Air Force Won Too leaves Washington D.C. flying west also at 540 miles/hour. Air Force Won Too is carrying the other Beast, 2 Hollywood makeup/hair artists, six (6) frock changes, three (3) MILSPEC containment structures and a bakers dozen SS Storm Troopers.
If Lady M dresses for her appearance on the Ellen show forty-one (41) minutes prior to landing, how many CO2 number bonds will it take to convince the rightwing global warming deniers that
the earth is not flat and that the Iranian Nukes for Peace deal is a good idea?
Hint: dont forget to use pi ("π") in calculating your answer.
My test question is based on an assumed fact: that Air Force Won isnt large enough to accommodate the entire First Family and their respective entourages.

So it took two planes to get POTUS and FLOTUS to their respective TV gigs; Big Guy to kibitz (can I still say that?) on Jimmy Kimmel:
And Lady M to dance with Ellen Degeneres (thanks, DeniseVB, for ruining everyones Friday evening with this yesterday):
The dancing begins at 3:00, butt its fun to hear Lady M pretend that she doesnt have people You think I have people!?
And heres a bonus Pi Day Common Core math for the common man question:
At the current cost of $228,288 per hour to operate Air Force Won, calculate the cool factor of BO and MO, respectively, based on their comings and goings for the past 6 years, 2 months and 14 days.
Hint: be sure to subtract the cost of the flight over the Statue of Liberty, in number bonds, as that was strictly for official public relations purposes. And again, dont forget to use pi ("π") in your calculation.
And heres todays historical footnote: with his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, BO has now officially done more TV talk shows than press conferences.
