Pi Day Specials

Are you ready to let your math nerd show a little bit? Pi Day. Celebrated on March 14th, 2020, it’s a time where many math lovers talk about the infinite digits of Pi and all things math-y, and consequently, celebrate by eating pie. What else would they do? It’s just too obvious. We are down with any reason to eat pie. What is Pi? With words from PiDay.org, Pi is: ” Pi (Greek letter “π”) 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… Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point.
