I play the piano and haven't had a lesson in over a decade. I can't remember how to play the a note that has what looks like the infinity sign in mathematics or an 8 turned 90 decrees. If someone could please tell me how, I would greatly appreciate it.

News to me, too. I've been in music for 40 years and I've never seen that.

That sounds like you are talking about a "turn". Basically it means to play the note above the written note, the written note, and then the note below the written note all in one quick little flourish of music. This is a pretty bad definition, but look at:
Turn at Wikipedia
for a better definition along with the printed notation.
