Math Enthusiasts: Happy Pi Day!

  • Print

Pi, Greek letter (seen below in the pie crust), is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th. Pi = 3.1415926535…

With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. Pi is an irrational and transcendental number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating. The symbol for pi was first used in 1706 by William Jones, but was popular after it was adopted by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler in 1737.

If you are looking to sweeten your Pi Day, these local businesses are offering something special:

Grand Travers Pie Company:  Free slice of pie at 3:14pm

Sweetie-licious Pie Pantry:  Free samples of pie at the bakery!

So whether you're a mathematician, number lover, or pie eater...Happy Pi Day!  (I'm a slice of pie kind of gal)
