What is the Pi Day? The circle’s narrative

Circles are among nature’s most beautiful and adaptable shapes.

International Day of Mathematics (IDM) and Pi Day are celebrated on March 14 by mathematicians from all over the world.

The day’s objectives are to promote mathematics’ beauty and relevance to a wider audience as well as to raise awareness of mathematics’ significance and role in shaping our world.

Mathematics for Everyone is the theme for this year. To commemorate the day, more than 1,700 events have been announced all over the world.

What is pi and how significant is it?
Pi is the ratio of a circle’s diameter to its circumference, which is about 3.14.

Pi is one of the most well-known symbols in mathematics. In physics, engineering, and statistics, it has many important applications.

Although the concept of pi dates back thousands of years, the Greek letter p, or, was only used to represent the mathematical constant in the early 1700s.

It is believed that was selected as an abbreviation for the term “periphery,” which refers to the distance that extends all the way around the circumference of a circle.

Why is March 14 designated as Pi Day?
In the month/day format, March 14 can also be written as 3/14, which corresponds to the first three digits of the number pi.

On March 14, 1988, physicist Larry Shaw organized a celebration at the San Francisco Exploratorium to make mathematics more approachable and enjoyable.

One of the most influential scientists of the 20th century, Albert Einstein, was born on March 14, 1879.

Fun Pi Day events and activities are held worldwide on March 14 to commemorate the renowned symbol.

Among these are the following:

Remember all of pi
Rivalries are held in science homerooms and online to see who can recollect the most digits of pi. Rajveer Meena, a 21-year-old student at VIT University in Vellore, India, set the Guinness World Record in March 2015 by recalling 70,000 digits of pi in nearly 10 hours.

Make Pi Day art If memorizing numbers doesn’t sound like a fun activity for you, why not get creative and make Pi Day art instead?

On March 14, fun activities like making Pi Day paper chains, rolling pi digits with a die, playing card games, and telling maths jokes will help science and math teachers motivate students of all ages.
