Get Ready To Celebrate National Pi Day 2017!!!

On March 14, 1879 Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany. We all recognize the iconic face and hair as well as his famous equation E = mc 2. 

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. 

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits. Reference 

National Pi Day is celebrated annually on March 14th. The earliest known official, or large-scale celebration of Pi Day was organized by Larry Shaw in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. The Exploratorium continues to hold Pi Day celebrations. 


And since science nerds rule the world, we are still celebrating National Pi Day and will continue to do so for all infiniti (no pun intended). 

Even if you hate math, you'll love Pi Day. Why? Because there's pie.

Question What's you favorite pie? I know, I know, that's a tough one. Me, I'm going for the pizza pie from an Italian mom and pop restaurant with pepperoni and sausage.
