National Pi Day 2022: When & How to Celebrate?
National Pi Day 2022 – Monday, March 14! National Pi Day is here to stimulate the excitement part of the brain of all the math enthusiasts around the world. You might be wondering why! Well, the reasons are simply too many! Pi is the un-paralleled, ceaseless ratio for describing circles. It stretches to the point of infinity probably which makes it marvelous and irrational at the same time.
Since its represented through the Greek initial “π,” and starts as 3.14 or 3/14 to the infinity, the 14th of March has been chosen as a celebratory day for National Pi Day to honor the marvelousness of the number. On 14th March Albert Einstein was also born, which makes the celebratory day even more amazing. Since 1988, the day has been celebrated by math aficionados alike. So, why don’t you join in on the Pi fun with some good old, PIE!
What is Pi?
Pie is the ratio which is denoted as the approximate value of 3.14, though the actual value reaches at the same level as infinity! If you divide a circle’s circumference with its diameter, the value would be the approximation of 3.14, which gets denoted through the Greek lettering π. If you continue to calculate pi’s digits with increasing precision—as mathematicians have done for four thousand years, you’ll find that they carry on indefinitely, without any pattern!
When is the Celebratory Day for National Pi Day during 2022?
The unparalleled, enchanting constant pi gets its celebratory day on the 14th of March each year as National Pi Day.
History Of National Pi Day
To understand pi, let’s dial back to a couple of thousands of years maybe and study this enigmatic number. It was none other than Archimedes of Syracuse, who happened to list among the greatest mathematicians of ancient times, who came up with the value of Pi for the first time. Nevertheless, the Greek lettering which we see today for representing Pi was attached by William Oughtred during 1647. The symbol found footing in the arena of scientists all thanks to the adoption of the lettering by Leonard Euler during 1737!
However, Pi Day became a phenomenon during 1988 due to physicist Larry Shaw! Shaw used the 1st 3 digits of pi (3.14) to create a special day to bring the Exploratorium workers together, whereupon he served fruit pies and drinks to everybody beginning at 1:59 p.m., the value’s next three numbers. After Larry’s daughter, Sara, pointed out that the auspicious date collided with Albert Einstein’s birthday! Well, that’s how the celebratory phenomenon found rhythm! The celebratory concept to take off, reaching a pinnacle on March 12, 2009, when it was recognized as a national holiday by the United States Congress. Pi Day has now become a pop culture phenomenon, with millions around the world celebrating it with events, shenanigans, discoveries, and as much pie eating as they can.

- Arrange a Pi Uttering Completion
Arrange a competition regarding Pi and invite your friends along as participants. While you get into the game don’t forget to eat some pie! Moreover, after the game is over maybe watch some documentary regarding the number pi!
- Make A Trip to The Science Museum.
Regardless of the fact that Exploratorium was the first to recognize National Pi Day, numerous scientific and engineering museums have since joined in by sponsoring events and projects for children and people of all ages to join in on the celebration.
Why We Love National Pi Day?
Pi is a mind-boggling number with its end is probably as good as infinity since it has no recognizable pattern and apparently no end either! For nerds, this could be the perfect opportunity to have the most fun by combining pie with pi in celebratory schemes! You used to look off into oblivion in math class, pondering why ‘logs’ or ‘proofs’ are considered as important.
Pi is the resolution to that end, or partially responsible for connecting arithmetic to real-life applications. Since pi is associated with circles, it is also associated with cycles, such as measuring waves, ebb and flow, coastal tides, electromagnetic waves, and so on. Pi may also be used to compute numerous natural world events, such as the shape of waterways, the sun’s disc, the helix of DNA, as well as the pupils of an eye.
