Happy Pi Day

Pie for everyone!  It’s Pi Day:

Pi, Greek letter (π), is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th. Pi = 3.1415926535…

With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. Pi is an irrational and transcendental number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating. The symbol for pi was first used in 1706 by William Jones, but was popular after it was adopted by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler in 1737.

Even Teh GOogles are celebrating:

And it’s also Albert Einstein’s birthday, so jam a candle in that celebratory slice of Pi and whoop it up (in a nerdy kind of way).  Pi-Pi now!

    A “special” day for a mathematical constant.

    Doesn’t that take the cake!

    Torontonian – I love pi, it’s one of my favourite irrational numbers.
