Happy Pi Day
Yep. Today is Pi Day. I’m a math teacher in my day job. So this is a big day for me. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi = 3.14 ish. We use that as the common estimation because the real Pi is irrational. You can divide forever (a nightmare to many people, I understand) and the number will never end or repeat. How cool is that?
Now this part is really cool (if you’re a math type). According to a Pi Day site , computers have figured Pi to over one trillion digits past the decimal. How exciting is that?
Hey, there – are you still awake?
I don’t have any Pi soap. Rats. I’ll have to do something about that before next year. I don’t have any pie soap either, but here’s a picture of a pie tart gel candle. I know it’s not nearly as exciting as Pi soap, but it’s as close as I can come . . . for now, anyway.
Thanks for sticking with me through this diversion into part of my little world of math!
