Pi Day 3.14

by Early Math Counts

Pi DayDid you know that Thursday is “Pi Day”?  I did not know that this was a thing, but I guess it is, bigtime.  Schools all over the world will celebrate this magical day with mathematical excitement and geometrical good times.

According to the Pi Day website

Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.

The diameter of a circle is the distance from edge to edge, measuring straight through the center. The circumference of a circle is the distance around.

Since our children are far too young to have any concept of Pi, I wouldn’t spend too much time talking about it.  I may, however, serve some wonderful fruit pie for snack on Thursday- and smile to myself.
