Today is the day that mathematicians celebrate Pi Day! It also happens to be the day that pie lovers around the world pay homage to the mighty Pie! Get it? Pi/Pie Day?
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. (from www.piday.org)
This Pi Day is more special than you may realize! Today’s date, 3/14/15 matches up with the first five digits of pi, the ratio of every circle’s circumference to its diameter: 3.1415! How cool is that?
This particular sequence in date comes once a century! All the reason to celebrate by eating pie at 9:26:53 a.m. and 9:26:53 p.m. 😉
