It's officially 3/14 or Pi day! As most of you know Pi is an infinite decimal and is pretty amazing. Casey is completely fascinated by Pi and after listening to this (you must go there and check it out, but I'll warn you, the tune will stay in your head all day... wait for the ad, then it will start), she can recite the decimal to 23 places. She's working on it and hopes to be up to 50 soon. There are middle school and high school students learning in the 100's or even 1000's. Talk about math enthusiasts.
Every year on Pi day, there are contests held to see just how many numbers people can recite. There is a man who can recite Pi to 100,000 decimal places. You can read about that here. Can you even imagine?
See Pi to 1,000,000 decimal places.
So to celebrate this fascinating, amazing number, I'm dedicating an entire post to Pi and encouraging all of you to eat some pie on Pi day!
Does cheesecake count? (According to wikipedia it does!!) :)
