Don’t show up to Pi Day unprepared…

Pi, also known by the Greek letter “π,” is a constant value used in math that represents the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is just about 3.14….15…9265359… (and so on). Not only that, but the fourteenth of March is also Albert Einstein’s birthday, so all together it’s nothing short of a mathematician’s delight.

Pi Day Icebreakers…

  • 15% of Americans wish there was a “π” emoji.
  • Rajveer Meena has the record for memorizing the most decimal places of pi at 70,000.
  • 12% of Americans say that Albert Einstein is their hero (his birthday is on Pi Day).
  • 6% of Americans have memorized more than 10 of the digits in pi.
  • 2% of Americans have a Pi tattoo.
  • Computing pi is a kind of “digital cardiogram” for computers.
  • Pi is very important for calculations in math, engineering, construction, physics and space exploration. Many often consider pi the most important number in all of mathematics.
  • Recite a Pi-Ku (like a haiku but 3/1/4 syllable structure)

Still not convinced? I get it. I was never top of the class when it came to mathematics, and quite often the one complaining that I would never need to know any of this in the real world. Well, Pi is proof that math is in fact important in the real world.

Because pi is linked to circles it is also linked to cycles, things like calculating waves, ebb and flow, the oceans tides, electromagnetic waves and much more. In addition, many natural world phenomena can also be calculated with pi — like the shape of rivers, the disc of the sun, the spiral of DNA and even the pupil of an eye.

There you have it! Whether you’re a proud, self-proclaimed nerd or you just love Pi shaped food, 3.14 is a day worth celebrating and the Pensacola Mess Hall is the place to do it! Head to their website to buy tickets or enter for your chance to win on our Instagram.
