Happy Pi Day!

 

March 14 will be the 22nd annual Pi day that celebrates the mathematical constant π. Pi has been known for almost 4000 years—but even if we calculated the number of seconds in those 4000 years and calculated pi to that number of places, we would still only be approximating its actual value.

 The founder of Pi Day was Larry Shaw, a now-retired physicist at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, California. The most common form of celebrating Pi day is of course baking and eating pies!  Some great Pi activities for celebrating the day can be found at www.TeachPi.org Have a Happy Pi Day!
