Pi day - March 14th
How to celebrate Pi Day
Once again, we are coming up on Pi Day, March 14th aka 3.14. The day when math geeks come out to play.
A wondrous time when math teachers everywhere tell their students to put down their calculators and pick up a plate to raise their forks in honor of this amazing pun - I mean number.
If you're lucky enough to be in the 1-2pm class, you can honor the perfect moment of 1:59:26 with a big bite of delicious pie.
Celebrating in style
Making, sharing and eating pie are not the only activities for this celebration.
There's the wearing of the traditional geek wear - a t-shirt with a clear pi joke or just a cool image with pi in it.
There are other choices for attire. For example, in an office where a t-shirt wouldn't pass the dress code, a pi tie would be acceptable.
All the Pi day games
There are a number of other festivities if t-shirts and pie just aren't quite enough to satisfy your appreciation of pi.
A popular game is "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?"
A good contest would be writing the best pi-ku poem. It is a wonderful way to express love and gratitude for pi as well to show off some creativity.
