Pi Day

~ Math Fight Song

Pi is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle‘s circumference to its diameter, approximately equal to 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter “π” since the mid-18th century though it is also sometimes spelled out as “pi." Today, March 14, represented in date form as 3/14 or 3.14, is designated as Pi Day, a good day to impress your friends by memorizing some of the digits of this irrational number, or to just eat some pie.

A tartan for today's special date, March 14th, also known as Pi Day, for the transcendental number, starting with the digits forming today's date (in the month/day/year system) = 3.14159 ...


Recall that pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.


By designer Carol A.L. Martin, the "3.14159..." tartan embodies the digits in the numbers of light-colored stripes.


Because pi is an irrational number, it repeats forever. Some mathematicians have made it a challenge to continuously calculate more and more digits of pi.   

 

The current record for this noble endeavor is 13.3 trillion digits by Alexander Yee and Shigeru Kondo.
