Happy Pi Day! For all of you non-math geeks, Pi is a mathematical symbol ( based off the Greek letter π). Used to find the circumference (perimeter) and area of a circle. So why is today Pi day? Pi is a crazy long, never ending number but the first 3 digit of pi are 3.14. Today is March 14th…3/14. So what better way to celebrate Pi Day than with pie?? Hooray!
Note: In researching Pi day, I did find that those of you in
Europe usually celebrate Pi Approximation day on July 22 (22/7) which is the fractional approximation of Pi.
