Happy Pi Day! Who Wants A Slice?

Happy Pi Day! Who Wants A Slice?

National Pi Day is not to be confused with National Pie Day, even though they are pronounced the same. The two can be easily mistaken because various pie or pizza places present deals for food on each of these days. While both of these days may seem like excuses to eat pie or pizza, National Pi Day actually has mathematical significance.

Dig deep into your archives of middle school geometry and remember the mathematical constant pi, which is is 3.14159265359 or commonly shortened to 3.14. This is why National Pi Day takes place in the third month of the year, on the fourteenth day of that month (March 14th).

Pi Fact: Albert Einstein, the German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, was born on March 14th in 1879. It’s as though he was destined to accomplish what he did!

Larry Shaw is credited with hosting the first Pi Day in 1988 at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, California. He worked there as a physicist and, according to the event history, people marched around the building’s circular spaces, followed by chowing down on pies!
