I come from a long line of mathematicians Ok, so my grandpa was a mathematician and a couple of my cousins followed in his footsteps. Either way, for some reason Pi Day (celebrated on 3/14 every year) is kind of a big deal in my family.
If I have to be totally honest, it probably has more to do with our immense sweet tooth and appreciation for any reason to celebrate than it does with our love of math.
That’s why, when I saw this picture pop up on my facebook feed last night, I just about died. How had I not thought of this already? It’s PI on PIE!
Holy delicious math, batman! I have at least one friend throwing a pi party today and man does it look delicious. As if we need another excuse to eat pie. The patience required to cut out all of these numbers truly deserves to be savored.
What are you doing to celebrate today?
