### Pi Day T-shirts

Happy Pi Day! Pi day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14). Pi (or π)is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

So today we will celebrate with Pi activities, such as eating pie, and wearing a funny Pi t-shirt!
