Pi Day

Did everyone know that it is Pi Day on Saturday March 14th (3/14) an event that is observed around the world each year? I did not know this until a friend brought it to my attention (Thanks Becky).

Pi – (the Greek letter “π”) is a mathematical constant – the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, most commonly represented as 3.14159. Surely everyone remembers Pi from high school maths? [The area of a circle = πr²].

The first 10 digits of Pi are 3.141592653, so this Saturday – 3.14.15 (March 14, 2015)  at 9:26:53am is a 1 in 100 year event when the date and time exactly correspond to the first 10 digits of Pi! Amazing!
