Happy Pi-Day

Today is March 14, 2020 – also known as Pi-Day.

As I wrote here, Pi-Day is a day to celebrate the mathematical constant \pi. Most importantly, it’s a day to celebrate the people in our lives that share a passion for mathematics, statistics, and science in general – because we should celebrate these people and the work they do!

Of course, my favourite part of Pi-Day, aside from getting to geek out with math and numbers, is the variety of pies I get to eat while celebrating 3.14… For those curious, my favourite type of pie is strawberry rhubarb. Although cherry, blueberry, rhubarb, lemon, pumpkin, pecan, raspberry, apple, blackberry, bakeapple, chocolate, and mincemeat all take a close second.

I also enjoy checking out the various online pi and math related posts, activities, and comics (just google Pi or Pi-Day). Because there are a lot of people out there who seem to love \pi. For instance, you can find any date in the digits of pi using Find Your Pi Day. The main image for this post was generated after searching for March 14, 2020.

This Dinosaur Comics – originally posted in 2007 – can be found here.

Anyway, there are pies to be eaten, so I’m just going to end by wishing you a very math filled and happy Pi-Day, and leave you with this ear worm.
