Does anybody know what today is?

Pi Day!



:thumbsup:


Here are a few fun resources:

http://www.vvc.edu/ph/TonerS/mathpi.html <==nice flash video about pi

http://www.tomdukich.com/math%20pi%20piano%20solo.html <== pi on the piano

http://www.avoision.com/experiments/pi10k/pi10k.html <== fun flash thing that allows you to assign a number to a note, then it plays pi! :flowers:

Today is "Pi Day!" because the date makes up the first two digits of pi. March is 3, and today is the 14. So when you write out the date you get 3/14 :trumpet:

Let's not forget 3.14s cousin, 6.28 which is a constant in many electronic calculations.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

One example,

COULOMB. A measure of the quantity of electricity. One coulomb is equal to 6.28 x 1018 electrons.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
