pi digitsHappy Pi Day!

Yes, it is that time of year once again! 3.141…. March 14th is World Pi Day, when math geeks everywhere celebrate this amazing entity we call pi.

“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

“Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.” (piday.org home page)

Are you ready for the Mathematical Pi Song? (Based loosely on that famous song by Jim Croce, American Pie)
