Are you tired of eating pizza in the same, boring triangle shape time after time? Neither are we, but experimentation is the spice of life! Or something like that, anyway. Mathematicians have come up with a new, slightly complicated slicing method. The usefulness of making fancy shapes out of pizza isn’t immediately clear, but there’s got to be some benefit to it, right? And hey, it looks pretty easy! Just cut curved pieces with any odd number of sides and then divide them in two! Try it this weekend for your football playoff party. If your team takes a nose dive, you’ll have something else to talk about besides missed opportunities and crushing defeat.
