This Thursday, March 14 (3-14), is Pi Day, a day celebrated internationally by mathematicians. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter and represents a constant, infinite number, beginning with 3.14159. Pi has been calculated to more than one trillion digits, and Pi Day is celebrated in a variety of ways, including eating pie and reciting the number to as many digits as is possible to memorize. Various websites are dedicated to Pi Day. If you want to learn more about it, you may want to visit the site 36 Surprising Facts About Pi. You might also be interested in the site Find Your Pi Day.
