The Hindu : Life & Style / Kids : Celebrating Pi day


I know one more person that is also a Pi (born on 3.14).  I happen to be a couple decimal points ahead on the number line.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 since the day is denoted as 3/14 in the month-day format. Most of you know that the ratio of the circumference to the diameter is a constant in any circle and can be approximated to 3.14 and hence the celebration. March 14 also happens to be the birthday of Albert Einstein so this event too is celebrated along with Pi day. Needless to say 3.14 is only an approximation of ð.

  1. Well, Never heard of this Pi Day before. But I am sure about one thing. Those who are in love with fabulous Pi don’t need to celebrate a special day for it. For them, everyday is a Pi Day. 🙂
