So today is Pi Day. Now, if you don't happen to know what Pi Day is, let me explain. In math class, we use formulas to help us solve different shapes' areas perimeter, and whatnot. But wayyyyy back in the day, a famous mathematician discovered that his equations weren't solving correctly. Eventually, that led him to discover an irregular number, 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399... and so on. The cool thing about that number is, it's a major component in solving the area of a circle. But the funny part is, the number goes on forever! And somewhere along the lines, that number got its own name, Pi, and symbol, which is in the pictures. The super exciting thing about Pi is that A) It falls on a specific day of the year, March 14th, 3.14 B) You can eat it C) You can have contests to see who can memorize the most numbers of it D) It's now celebrated in math classrooms all over the world. We celebrated it today in my school. Basically, people brought in any round food (because Pi has to do with circles), and we had a contest to see who could get the farthest. My class only got to 3.141592653589793, but I came in 3rd :) Anyway, something really cool about this year's pi day is that it's FRIDAY PI DAY. It doesn't get any better than that. Well, actually next year might be better, because it'll be 3.1415, but you get my point. Ok, there's just one more little story. So my friend (we'll call her Violet for privacy's sake) memorized 100 numbers of pi. Let that sink in for a bit. It blew me away, because last year I actually attempted to memorize the numbers and it was pretty hard. But what was super amazing was that yesterday she told me she had 76 numbers memorized, and then today she had 100! Pretty neat stuff. Well, I hope you enjoyed this probably unexpected post about Pi Day, and I also realize that I took way too long to explain it, because most of you probably already know what it is, but I missed blogging, and haven't had the time to do it lately. But Im really trying my best to keep up, and be on the lookout for some really cool St. Patty's day recipes with my OWN pictures! Yup! That's right, I'm going to go full on blogger with everything done by me. :) Well I'll talk to you guys soon! Byyyyeeeee!!!
