Everything Pi Day 3/14 !!

Happy Pi Day!

What is Pi?    Pi is used to calculate the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. 




Did you know that Pi Day is also Albert Einstein's birthday?  Pi Day was coined this day because pi which is the infinite number begins with 3.14.

Many people celebrate Pi day in different ways.

Some people make pies on pie day.  I personally like this idea.  Who doesn't like pie?  I can remember making homemade apple pies in the kitchen with my mom when I was a litttle girl.  The scent would fill up the entire house.  I can smell it now.





Check out this great Pi Pinterest board .  It features all kinds of pi and pie activities for you and your family to enjoy.




Some people enjoy eating Pizza pie on Pi day.  It's a delicious and easy way to
show your appreciation for Pi.    At the Exploratorium in San Francisco, California they have an entire day of events scheduled to celebrate pi day, including  Pizza dough tossing.  If you live in the area, this would be a fun day out for the family.






The New York Daily News published a great article a couple of years ago on fun ways to celebrate Pi day.  They include visiting the Pi day capitol in Princeton, NJ,  memorizing Pi,  having a Pi-arty and so much more.  Check out this fun article:
