March 14 (3/14), is only a few days away, which means it’s time to celebrate pi, everybody’s favorite irrational mathematical number (the 14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday). Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and it’s an irrational number, so it can’t be expressed as a simple fraction of two integers. 3.14 is just the beginning of pi, which goes on for infinity.

This STEM-themed holiday is an ideal time to plan some Pi-filled activities for your classroom or for children at home. Here are our five great tips to celebrate math on Pi Day.

- Prove Pi exists by measuring the circumference and diameter of circular objects around the classroom or house and solving for the equation: circumference = (pi) x (diameter).
- See how many digits of the number Pi you can recite. A Japanese man in 2005 memorized pi to 83,431 digits.
- Write a Pi-ku, a math version of the traditional 5-7-5 syllabic haiku. A Pi-ku of course, follows a 3-1-4 syllabic pattern.
- Bake a Pi-themed pie. Whether savory or sweet, eating deliciously circular pies is a highlight of every Pi day.
- Impress your friends by learning the song, “Mathematical Pi,” set to the tune of “American Pie”; or sing Pi Day carols.

My 10 year old grandson has memorized the first 190 numbers of PI..how can I find out if that is a record. Of course, he had a financial incentive from disbelieving grandpa who offered $1 a number.

Honestly, I find it easiest to simply remember that Pi is equal to 22/7.

Sir

i have found a lots trig formula to finding the aproximat value of pi.

eg.

pi=(180^m/m)*Sin(m/180^(m-1))

Pi=(180^m/m)*Tan(m/180^(m-1))

pi=(180^m)*Sin(1/180^(m-1))

pi=(180^m)*tan(1/180^(m-1)

pi =[2*180^m*Sin(1/180^(m-1))]/[1 Cos(1/180^(m-1))]

pi=180^m/root[1/4 1/tan^2(1/180^(m-1))]

and i can crEate almostly 3.1415926535898 Formule for pi. .:-D.happy pi day .

1.where all angel are in degree

2. the value of pi by all above these formula

is exact to 4(m) place after decimale.

3. m is a integer . !

Does they important for you to celibrating the pi day or not ?.;-)
