Pi Day is 3.14.16 Fun Things to Do to Celebrate Mathematics on March 14, 2016


Happy Pi Day!

Pi Day this year falls on March 14! That’s the day people all over the world irrationally and irreverently celebrate this important mathematical constant. It’s the only number with its own holiday.

Most scholars consider Pi to be the most important and fascinating number in all of mathematics.  Technically, the mathematical constant pi is an irrational, or never ending number, created by dividing the circumference of a circle by its diameter. It is a number that begins with 3.14 but then goes on and on never repeating itself for infinity.

Pi Day (3/14) turns out to be Albert Einstein’s birthday!

Some people make the day special by baking a pie. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an apple pie, a cherry pie or one made with chocolate cream.

Other people, like math and science game wizard Cy Tymony focus on teaching people fun ways to enjoy and learn more about science and mathematics. Cy is the author of the young adult educational book series “Sneaky Uses for Everyday Things”. These books are packed with cool math and science games and projects for kids and teens to play.

This year Cy created www.PiDayFun.com – an educational website dedicated to making Pi Day math memorable with free tips on how kids can have lots of fun using discarded items and without special tools. The site contains 5 Free ‘Pi’ and Math Projects.
