The magic of Pi(zza)
Today is the best day to eat pizza with a measure tape
Nerdy, freaky,.. call it what you want, but the reality is that most of us working in Electronics Engineering thank their daily bread (and butter) thank to this magic number. March the 14th is the best opportunity to brush up your Pi knowledge and the people from AJlabs from Al Jazeera has done an excellent job in collecting the facts and the figures around Pi – give it a read!
The best advice they give? Make today a (Pi)zza Day! Make sure you have your measure tape at hand to check and explain the formula to your family and friends!
Why is Pi Day celebrated on March 14?
March 14 can also be written as 3/14 in the month/day format, which matches the first three digits of the numerical value of pi.
The celebration of Pi Day began on March 14, 1988, at the San Francisco Exploratorium, where physicist Larry Shaw organised a celebration to make mathematics more relatable and fun.
Enjoy Pi Day!
