Today is Pi Day

By Denise Greer

A Mathematical Celebration of Pizza

On this day, pizzerias, bakeries and many other vendors of round baked goods offer deals to commemorate the mathematical constant: “pi” (π) or “pie”.

What’s the true meaning of Pi Day? sums up the occasion: “Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “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.”

As you can see, it’s an easy jump to pizza. They are circular (except the ones that are square, oblong, oval or rustic). And what’s a better representation of the mathematical constant than pizza?

Let’s explore some ways pizzerias are having fun with Pi Day on Instagram:
