Celebrating Math on Pi Day March 19, 2017

Avon, Hartford County
Celebrating Math on Pi Day, Avon, Connecticut

Here at Mathnasium of Avon, CT every March 14th we celebrate the most sacred of math days: the ‘Pi’ Day! No, not pies that you eat – that is another holiday in January celebrating edible pies. This Pi day is the celebration of mathematical constant Pi denoted with the letter π!

What Is Pi?

π or Pi is a math term that describes the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is a mathematical constant and its number rounds to 3.14

Therefore we celebrate Pi Day on March 14th or 3/14!

And math enthusiasts around the world enjoy the celebration of one of math’s most important concepts.

 

But why would anyone ever use ‘Pi’??

Children often ask of many math concepts what are the practical applications of math concepts. As math tutors, we give them examples that they can relate to.

For example:

  • Pendulum clocks- Pendulums move in the arc of a circle, with the arm of the pendulum equal to the diameter of the circle. Therefore, pi is used for the adjusting of clocks for accuracy.
  • Statistics- Statisticians use pi in solving problems regarding probability. The standard distribution, or bell curve, depends on pi as a constant.
  • Sports!-The velocity at which a pitcher throws a baseball depends on the length of his arm and pi. The joint in the shoulder acts as a pivot point and the length of bone is the radius of a circle.

And there are many other facets of life that involve pi that most people don’t even know about. It really is used everywhere! And as a way to celebrate Mathnasium of Avon CT is offering 3.14% off first month fees to all students that enroll in the month of March!
