Happy 3.14 Day

Home / March 2018 / Happy 3.14 Day

Today, March 14th, it is everyone’s favorite number π.  Being a former math teacher today is up there with May 4th…you know StarWars fans, ‘May the Fourth Be With You’.  If you remember your geometry, π starts 3.1416….and goes on to infinity with no repeats.  I’ll be honest, I never remember the series beyond the five numbers I’ve listed, but I had a lot of students who could rattle off the series for ten plus numbers.  I suppose if you were aiming a rocket for Mars or another planet you might need a higher degree of precision, but for most of the Earth bound applications, 3.14 worked for me.

Mostly it is a day for π/pie jokes.  So Happy day!
