Happy Pi Day, everyone! At Math-U-See, we love math and we love to celebrate, so a math holiday like Pi Day is perfect! Two years ago we even had a pi(e) contest at the Demme Learning home office. Here’s the pie that Steve Demme brought in that day. 🙂
Some aren’t that fond of π, like our own Isaac Demme (although he does love piE, to be clear). Read his thoughts on the matter in this blog post.
What is Pi Day?
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th because 3, 1, 4 are the first three digits of the mathematical term π: 3.14.
People celebrate Pi Day in several ways, ranging from doing mathematical activities to making a delicious dessert for the family to enjoy. We’d love to know how you celebrate Pi Day! Let us know in the comments.
Our friend Bethany shared this helpful video from PBS that explains it:
