The Most Epic Pi Day Ever!


Not since March 14, 1915 has Pi Day been this epic!



       Oh yeah.  You know it.  Pi Day this year is going to be a big one.  3.14.15  The stars are aligned; the digits are aligned.  It is going to be bigger the Super Bowl of Mathematics--a national holiday for mathematics teachers everywhere!

       In my school district, we are celebrating with a major celebration.  We are running the Pi-K race with 400 participants.

       There will be a pie eating contest.  We are looking forward to the Einstein look-alike contest (Albert Einstein was born on March 14th.)  And we will have activities for children of all ages.


       So let's hear it for the one, the only, the irrational, the never ending, the number Pi
