Do you remember your high school math? Can you recite Pi to 5 digits past the decimal point? 10 digits? More?
Pi represents the relationship between a circle's diameter and its circumference. Pi = 3.14159 and on and on. Computer programs have calculated Pi to over a trillion digits past the decimal point.
Since Pi=3.14, March (the third month) 14, is celebrated by math fans as Pi day.
March 14 equals 3/14 equals 3.14
Celebrating Pi Day is a fun way to remember this math concept. Have a piece of pie, or pizza pie, or a pi-neapple!
