## Re: Celebrate Pi Day Today

My celebration is complete. I enjoyed a piece of coconut cream pie. I am also celebrating the fact that I do not have to remember how to solve geometry problems using pi.

I'm a volunteer with a national service dog organization.  Today the volunteers prepared more than 20 savory and sweet pies for the staff of the NE Regional Center.  we try to do this every year on PI (PIE) day.

With all the initials for things being put in text(not texting, just plain old text), I haven't a clue what many of them mean. With most of them I am not interested enough to look it up.

With Pi? If it means pie, why leave out the "e"?  Kinda like Arb Day. Could be Arbor Day or Arby's Day, no!

Anyways, can't remember the last time I ate either pizza or a dessert type pie. Will have to tell my wife, she eats both. Might want to join in today.

@hckynutjohn I know what you mean about having to look things up on the internet. Pi is the number 3.14 that is used to determine area of circles. It has a special symbol I cannot find in my iPad. Someone posted a picture of it earlier in this thread. I think it was created in the late 1700's.

Back 15 years or so March 14 was declared the official pi day because of the 3-14- way of writing the date. People started celebrating by eating some version of pie with an e. It is just a fun thing to do, but it is a teachable moment for math teachers.

Hope your wife gets to enjoy some type of pie. Don't forget chicken pot pie, shepherds pie, etc. Maybe you have some in the freezer. I am about to have my second piece of coconut.

I didn't take geometry, but I hear Venn Diagrams mentioned quite a bit. Had to look that up. Did take algebra and think I remember something about Pi Squared. No clue what it means.
