Pi Day surprises
If you’re into math, and who isn’t, you probably know a thing or two about pi. For instance, National Pi Day is always March 14. Look at it this way: March 14 is also written 3/14. Pi, the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter, is just about 3.14….15…9265359… (and so on) Get it? 3/14 and 3.14.
That’s just where the fun begins. March 14 was also scientist Albert Einstein’s birthday. With the combination of Einstein’s birthday, the 3/14 and the first three digits of Pi (3.14) you have the makings of a math celebration. So, let’s go celebrate pi!
