Pi Day: A Mathematical Celebration of Pizza
On this day, pizzerias, bakeries and many other vendors of round baked goods offer deals to commemorate the mathematical constant: “pi” (?) or “pie”.
What’s the true meaning of Pi Day? Piday.org sums up the occasion: “Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “?”) 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.”
As you can see, it’s an easy jump to pizza. They are circular (except the ones that are square, oblong, oval or rustic). And what’s a better representation of the mathematical constant than pizza?
