Pi is fascinating for any number of reasons, but this video does an excellent job summarizing the history of pi and how it was calculated. I knew some of it, in concept, but I would have struggled to explain it. I still wouldn't get a full explanation right, but I feel definitely more capable of attempting it. That said, rather than have me explain it, just watch the video.
