Posted on March 11, 2015 by Lesley Arnold

 

Pi Day is coming soon! All around the world pi day will be celebrated!

Pi (?) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. To honor this never ending number, people all over the world celebrate it!
Get your pi cake ready, because the big celebration is coming!! images
When? March 14, 2015
March (3rd month) 14 (day) 15 (year) = 3.1415
The Exploratorium in San Francisco originated the celebration of Pi Day and there are lots of activities scheduled there for their celebration. You can visit their website at http://www.exploratorium.edu/pi/ to find activities for your own celebration! Here is one activity from their website that I thought was fun:
Materials:
Internet access
To Do and Notice:
Pick a number sequence that’s special to you—perhaps your birth date.
Go to the Pi-Search Page and type your sequence in the search box at the top of the page. This web site will search the first 200 million digits of pi in a fraction of a second. (See “How it works” on the Pi-Search Page to find out how this is accomplished.) If it finds your sequence, it will tell you at what position in pi your sequence begins and will display your sequence along with surrounding digits.
No result? Try another sequence. The shorter the sequence, the better the odds of finding it.

ENJOY YOUR PI DAY CELEBRATION!

I’m sending you an infinite number of smiles for your celebration!
