## “π” 3/14/15 — International Pi Day

Celebrate Mathematics on March 14th …with a PIE!!!

Pi Day is celebrated yearly, but this year, 2015, is special because this sequence happens once in a century. For the first time in a 100 years, Pi Day will represent the first 10 digits of the mathematical constant — *It’s the Pi Day of the century people!*

*Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.*

*Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.*
