Happy Pi(e) Day!
March 14 is Pi Day, because the date (3/14) contains the first three digits of the number pi, or π, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
But if we’re being honest, most people don’t get excited about Pi Day because they love geometry—they celebrate the holiday because it is a great excuse to eat pie. It’s also a great excuse to enjoy these historic photos of celebrities making, serving, or eating pie.
photo 1: Frances Gifford feeds a forkful of pie a la mode to Pat O’Brien while on tour with the Hollywood Victory Caravan, 1942. The Caravan was a tour of Hollywood stars to support the American war effort.
photo 2: Milton Berle gets a celebratory pie in the face with the help Lanny Ross on an episode of The Swift Show, circa 1948.
photo 3: Young television stars Glenn (left) and Ronnie Walken, later film star Christopher Walken, roll out dough for pie crusts at their father's bakery, circa 1955.
photo 4: Hugh O'Brian and Natalie Wood enter a pie eating competition during the Thalians Beach Ball in Malibu, California. July 15,1956.
photo 5: Sandra Dee prepares a massive cream pie in the 1962 film «If a Man Answers».
photo 6: Mick Jagger looks on as someone approaches Brian Jones from behind, ready to throw a pie at him during a medieval inspired feast to promote their album Beggars Banquet in 1968.
I wish I had this account 10 days ago so I could post this then.
At my school we had this competition to see who could recite as many digits of Pi as they can and one kid got maybe 60 of them. I can do maybe 5?
Also I feel like I'm talking to nobody since I have zero followers. FOR NOW. Hopefully. Idk. I just started this today so :/ #piday#yes#python

If you don’t get my shirt that means your parents paid for you to get into college. #piday#applepiedelta
Flashback to Pi Day (March 14 or 3.14) and all of the fun activities the students and I did in the classroom. From learning about Pi, using Pi to find the circumference of a cookie, reading about the homophone pie in “Enemy Pie”, and writing a Pi-Ku...we had a blast.

Day 24 Customers/Feedback #marchmeetthemaker .
Feedback like this makes me so happy. Sometimes we send things off and it feels like they’ve gone into the ether. I start wondering, did it arrive ok? Was it mangled? Did they hate it? I certainly know how it feels to receive a long coveted item in the mail, so to see reviews like this just makes me so happy to know that I could give someone else that joy and excitement. Many people have doubted my business because it’s too “niche”. Science themed crafting kits and products? Who wants that?! It’s definitely not for everyone, and it’s not trying to be. But by focusing on my customers I feel like I can give them something that they truly love. Feedback like this totally fills my cup. Thank you thank you thank you to all my amazing customers! .

Η queer προγραμματίστρια της Google, η Emma Haruka Iwao, υπολόγισε τον αριθμό «π» κάνοντας νέο παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ. Η Iwao κατόρθωσε να υπολογίσει το «π» σε 31 τρισεκατομμύρια δεκαδικά ψηφία, ξεπερνώντας το προηγούμενο ρεκόρ των 22 τρισεκατομμυρίων, όπως αναφέρει το BBC.
Η Iwao, που εδρεύει στο Σιάτλ των ΗΠΑ, πέτυχε το εν λόγω εγχείρημα χρησιμοποιώντας την Cloud Platform της Google.
Ο αριθμός «π» είναι μια μαθηματική σταθερά οριζόμενη ως ο λόγος της περιφέρειας ενός κύκλου προς τη διάμετρό του και ισούται, όπως μάθαμε στο σχολείο, με 3,14. Αν και τα πρώτα δεκαδικά ψηφία του «π» είναι γνωστά, ο αριθμός αυτός στην πραγματικότητα έχει άπειρα δεκαδικά ψηφία.
Ο υπολογισμός της Iwao χρειάστηκε 121 ημέρες για να ολοκληρωθεί, ενώ χρησιμοποίησε 25 εικονικές μηχανές και 170TB δεδομένων. Για να συλλάβουμε το μέγεθος των δεδομένων, σε 1TB χωράνε περίπου 200.000 μουσικά κομμάτια.
Η Google αποκάλυψε τα νέα την Παγκόσμια Ημέρα της Σταθεράς «π», δηλαδή στις 14 Μαρτίου. «Αισθάνομαι πολύ μεγάλη έκπληξη», ανέφερε η Iwao στο BBC, για το γεγονός ότι έσπασε το παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ: «Προσπαθώ ακόμα να προσαρμοστώ στην πραγματικότητα. Το παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ ήταν πολύ δύσκολο.» Στο Twitter της, η Iwao περιγράφει τον εαυτό της ως: “Developer Advocate for Google Cloud Platform/Software engineer, gamer, queer, and feminist.” #piday#queer#feminism#google#emmaharukaiwao#cloudplatform#japanese#record#guinness#world#woman#proud

The parenting journey 👪 will be long, arduous, and worthwile 😅
It will be paved with struggles and victories.
Education is a roller coaster ride. Teachers will tell you what your child needs to learn and sometimes it's hard to listen to what they have to say.
Of course, as parents we will try our best to fix it until the next report card is out or PT meeting is scheduled 🆗
Mathemagic provides an advanced numeracy curriculum so students learn to count faster 🙋♀️ and get better, more accurate results 💯
Once a child is empowered in Mathematics, they can blossom and become the best version of themselves in sciences, it's like watching 'a beautiful mind' 😁
We at Mathemagic WISH these techniques were around when we were growing up!!! Mathemagic is TRYING to entertain you with Math jokes and memes. How are we doing? 😁😁😁 Home tuition - Online tuition - University applications
Hi there! Looks like I completely missed out on Pi Day a few weeks ago! If you’ve been following me a bit, you know I do not have a much of a sweet tooth, most everything I post is a savory veggie dish!😜 After Pi Day, my hubby (who has an insatiable sweet tooth😁😋) was hankering for a cherry pie. His fave. So I made him one yesterday.😍
Enjoy your Sunday!😘🙌
I love homemade pie and this kind of pie is my favorite! It’s basically salad! 😂😂 it’s mostly tofu and peanut butter with chocolate shakeology and dates! 😍 I was gonna make a homemade pie crust but laziness won. #latergram

PB Chess Pie. $3.14 Thursday for #PIDAY while supplies last!
I spent 2 days with the kids in this school. They didn't know me so they naturally weren't the most comfortable with me. But when I was asked to conduct this action song, THEY made ME feel comfortable up on the stage. I was a little unsure if they'll partake, but most of them did and I couldn't be happier 😊
These kids are pure love. ❤️ (Putting this up here, leaving aside my ego and letting go of the dreadful judgement of self.. Just in the hope of putting a smile on your face ☺️) @sunbird_northeastindia

Was feeling tired but rallied enough this afternoon to make a peanut butter and nutella cream pie with oreo crust for Sonia's pi day party. Not a lot of competitors this year but it won the "best sweet" category. #piday#pieday
Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the month/dayformat) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.
Pi Approximation Day is observed on July 22(22/7 in the day/month format), since the fraction 22⁄7 is a common approximation of π, which is accurate to two decimal places and dates from Archimedes.
Two Pi Day, also known as Tau Day, is lightly observed on June 28 (6/28 in the month/dayformat). . .
