### Happy National Pi Day ~~ a Pi Poem (Pi-om), this year a Limerick

To the fridge Grandfather Jim went

In there he'd find a pie for Lent

The fridge was oh so bare

Leftovers and a hare

Rabbit fit for pie he was bent

I've used the rabbit picture before, first in 2008 (link) as my Easter Rabbit surprise. I have no idea where it originated, it came on a chain e-mailing.

*The Tuesday Platform ~~http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-tuesday-platform_14.html*"Pi" is a mathematical constant equaling 3.14159265359. For most applications 3.14 or 3.1416 is usually sufficient. For approximation we can use 3 1/7.

A lot of people will be writing a "Pi Poem. Different form and free form will be used, some will use a Pi-Kau, a three line special poem of a three syllable, a one syllable, and a four syllable lines. This year I am writing a Limerick, one year I wrote pi-kau form.

My other years

*'pi poems'*are here.

- Pi is useful for finding areas and volumes when the object is a circle or a cylinder.
- In a formula we can abbreviate pi to be represented for pi by using the Greek letter "π".
- What is Pi? It is the circumference of any circle, divided by its diameter. Also using this equation, we can back out and find dimensions by manipulating the formula.
- For example, knowing the diameter ("D") of a circle we can find the circumference ("C") by using the formula, C = π x D.
- Pi Day also happens to be the birthday of Albert Einstein. (born 1879) You could eat a pie or play an Einstein-themed trivia game, or have an Einstein impersonator contest.
- Mrs. Jim is making me a pi Day pie, I hope rhubarb.
