Math and science buffs around the world celebrate March 14th as Pi Day. This most important mathematical constant is generally abbreviated to 3.14159, or even just 3.14, so, of course, it is celebrated on 3/14. This date is also Einstein's birthday.
Because of the sound of the word, many people mark the occasion by eating pie. Purists would celebrate exactly at 1:49 in the afternoon (or morning if you really love math). This time works really well for math teachers who look forward to ways to make math fun.

"You say what?" That is what I said when my grandson called me and asked me if I would help him with a school project. Of course I would! I said "I need to make a pie for Pi Day for a Math project?" Huh? Yes, each child was told to bake a pie for Pi Day! This was a new one for me! :) Okay, This is how he explained this to me.
Pi Day (3/14) is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant Pi (3.14159...). Since the fraction Pi is a common approximation of Pi, which is accurate to 2 decimal places and dates from Archimedes. Larry Shaw is the organizer of the first Pi Day celebration at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. This is why we celebrate Pi day each March 14th. So, we had to make a pie!
