It’s Pi Day! March 14th is 3-14 which is the same number at Pi: 3.14. We celebrated with little apple pies and reading some books about Pi!
What is Pi?
Pi (π), the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet, is used to represent a mathematical constant. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi equals the circumference divided by the diameter (π = c/d). Also, the circumference is equal to pi times the diameter (c = πd). The cool thing is that no matter how large or small a circle is, pi will always work out to be the same number.
To celebrate Pi Day, we are eating yummy apple pies. We made some little mini ones in a muffin pan.
I think we will be eating pizza today & measuring it! Are you celebrating Pi Day?
