Pie for a Pi

March 14th, 2011

Mathematicians, among others, observe Pi Day today due to Pi being 3.14 (or extended as, 3.1415926535…) or otherwise, as March 14. While you could commemorate the occasion with some clever calculations, I might suggest another formula. Check out some pie titles from Steenbock’s cookbook collection!
