Pi Day (March 14)

March 12th, 2012

Mathematicians, among others, observe Pi Day 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 suggest another formula. Check out some “pie” from Steenbock’s cookbook collection!
