Most math students know the number Pi or 3.14159265359 but you may not know that there is an actual Pi Day. It’s easy to guess when it is: just look at the first three digits of Pi. Pi Day has been celebrated on March 14th (3/14) since 2009 and has only gotten more popular. It's often celebrated by eating pie. This is a math teacher’s and math lover’s day.
Here at East, math enthusiasts celebrated Pi Day this year. The Math department even brought matching shirts that were pretty neat. Scholar Wilson Rivera is an avid math lover and pie lover. He said he was shocked when he walked into class and saw that his math teacher Mr. Wilson brought in pie. This made them happy because having math in the morning meant they have pie at 8 o'clock in the morning. Talk about a sugar rush.
It's wonderful to see people come together and be rational for once on such an irrational day. Now that you have been informed about Pi Day you can celebrate it next year and just remember if you’re ever in a jam with your math teacher just bring them pie. It’s as easy as Pi!
