Pi Day

March 14th is known as "Pi Day"! Why? Because it is the 14th day of the thrid month (3.14)

Did you know?

The first Pi Day was held in 1988 in San Francisco as a way to draw greater attention to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

Held on March 14 (3.14 — get it?), this special math holiday corresponds with Albert Einstein's birthday.

Whether you're a math nerd or a wannabe, March 14 is our day. It's the time when those of us who dance in the transcendent, resplendent beauty of numbers unite to celebrate our irrational love of pi.

Yes, pi (π) — that funny looking Greek letter that represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. No matter how large or small a circle is, you can divide the distance around it by the distance across and get the same cool number. Mindbending, huh? (Let's take a moment.)
