E26 Eddie Woo and the Fun Guys (who are actually quite serious)

Looking for Pi (Or is that pie?)

Maths whiz Eddie Woo shows us the patterns in circles that lead to Pi / π. But all Billy can think about is pie… This episode acts as a springboard for our own explorations of Pi in the natural and constructed world and we learn about the remarkable properties of mushrooms and fungi.
