Radius : Radii :: Darius : Darii

March 12, 2013
This was my first college art project. I always considered myself an English nerd, but I love math almost as much. I use my whole brain.

This was my first college art project. I always considered myself an English nerd, but I love math almost as much. I use my whole brain.

As an Interventionist at a public high school in New Orleans, I’ll be teaching several subjects: algebra, remedial math, geometry and reading. Today I was observing a geometry class during 1st period, and we were talking about the plural of the word radius: radii.

Of course this prompted a glorious discussion about the pluralized form of ius.

And then Darius raised his hand.

Would I be Darii? Like if there was 2 of me?

Yes, you would be Darii if there were 2 of you. Anyone else in your family named Darius?

Nah, I was named after Hootie and the Blowfish.

Oh, that’s right.

    awesome. i’m lovin’ wagon wheel right now (esp zac brown band’s cover).
    today when i received my purchase confirmation email from groupon, it said: Our squad of hyper-intelligent octopuses successfully processed your purchase without entangling their arms.
    and i totally thought it was supposed to be octopi. but then i googled it and it looks like that’s legit. i prefer octopi. nothing should end in “puses”…
    listening to wagon wheel right now šŸ™‚
