17: Pi versus Tau

Here's Vi Hart:

What do you think?

What changes to math would occur as a result of switching from using pi to using tau?
  • Which will be good/useful/more efficient?
  • Which be bad/annoying/less efficient?

Does she make a good enough case for us to switch in this class or should we continue to use pi?

(at 2:30, "The way of mathematics is to make stuff up and see what happens." I love that statement.)
