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

"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.
