Post about Polygon Approximations to Pi

So I spent a few minutes tonight writing an interesting math answer on Quora: Is a circle a shape with an infinite number of corners?

The challenge in answering this question is that even if the premise of the original question is incorrect, I feel like I can try to figure out the intuition that led to the question and how that related to more complex mathematical topics.

I’m not sure about the math background of the question writer, or the people who are reading my answer, which makes these kinds of things hard to do. Maybe it’ll be worth my time to do more of these – I often have a hard time finding blog post ideas but Quora has a never-ending supply of content ideas!
