Pi Day

What are you doing for Pi Day on the 14th of March? (Americans only) Why Americans only? because for everyone else the date is 14.3 not 3.14

In any way it’s still a great day that everyone (nerds, geeks, teachers, students) will get together to celebrate such and amazing letter, symbol, number… 🙂

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.

So what ever you do on the 14th of March, make sure you spread the word by saying happy Pi day to everyone you see.
