Happy Pi Day!

It’s Pi Day, everybody! 3.14 = March 14th. Celebrate the world’s favorite irrational number by having some pie. Pizza pies are ok, too. You can even calculate their circumference if you know the diameter, just multiply by … you guessed it, pi!

Here’s a website about pi day with cool facts, quotes, and more. One of my favorite quotes is from a mathematician named Leopold Kronecker, “What good is your beautiful investigation regarding pi? Why study such problems, since irrational numbers do not exist?” Even the best of us get it wrong sometimes.

This site has a Pi Day special 12 by 12 sudoku puzzle using the first 12 digits of pi.

YouTube has some great videos, too. Here’s one.

It’s also my second wedding anniversary! And the 8th anniversary of meeting my future wife. Happy anniversary, Jenny! I love you!
