Chalk board Pi

One of the oldest and the most recognizable mathematical constant in the world, Pi (π) is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter. Its value is approximately equal to 3.14159265. It is an irrational number, which means it cannot be expressed as a ratio of whole numbers, and its decimal representation never ends or repeats.

HOW TO CELEBRATE PI DAY!

1. Pi is a homophone of pie – the 2 words are pronounced similarly, but are spelled differently and mean different things. Celebrate Pi Day by having lots and lots of pie.
2. Have a pie baking contest. Ask participants to bake pi shaped pies. Combine it with a pie eating competition.
3. Have a pi recitation contest. Anyone who can recite the most digits of the constant gets to take home a pie.
4. Embrace your geekness. Wear a t-shirt that has the numbers of pi on it or sport some pi shaped accessories. Earrings perhaps?
5. Eat foods that start with a pi, like pineapples and pizza or foods that are circular in shape like pancakes and cookies.
6. Watch the 1998 Darren Aronofsky movie, Pi.
