Partners in Pi, This year’s Pi Day just feels right. After a few years of paused traditions, unspoken digits, and uneaten slices, Pi Day 2023 feels like a good old fashioned, typical Pi Day… and that’s a good thing! It falls on a Tuesday, which is a perfectly bland d...

Pals in Pi, Happy Monday! In the good old days, I would always root for Pi Day to fall on a weekday. The glow of the holiday shines brightest when teachers and students are together at school on the actual 3/14 and the raucous revelry is uninhibited. And so perhaps it’s fittin...

Saturday, March 14, 2020 feels like a very long time ago. As I’ve said before, some of my favorite Pi Days of all time have been on Saturdays, including, of course, 3.14.15, the Pi Day of the Century. So I had naturally been looking forward to it, as I’m sure you were. ...

Hi friends, It’s usually a good thing when Pi Day falls on a Saturday. The last two times this has taken place were both momentous dates in our shared history of Pi: But alas, Saturday, March 14, 2020 came and went with a bit of a whimper for most of us, myself included. While ...

Hey, Pi People! Hope you’re all geared up for a great Pi Day 2019! As for me, my Pi Day celebration started nice and early. I was a special guest at what I would consider to be one of the two biggest Pi Day celebrations on the planet: Pi Day Princeton! (I was lucky enough to vis...

Hi, Pi pals! We’ve endured nearly a full year since our last excuse to celebrate our favorite number, and now, well, we’re back! The math-holiday highlight of the months since the last Pi Day was most certainly the “e Day of the Century,” which we hit (and many...

Hi, Friends in Pi! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Another Pi Day is approaching, and while there’s not much mathematically special about 3/14/17 (except maybe for the fact that 3+14=17, but who’s counting?), this year’s holiday is apparently going to...

We all now have our stories of where we were, who we were with, and what kind of pie we were chewing at the Big Moment last year: 3/14/15, 9:26:53. Nothing will ever quite match the grandeur of that one. Where was I? I was in a room of 500 math majors and professors in Los Angeles,...

Some are calling it the Pi Day of the century. Others, more dramatically, have deemed it the only (true) Pi Day of our lives. Whatever you call it, 3.14.15 is undeniably the biggest day in the modern history of math holidays. Well, in our ten-fingered world, that is. (On that side ...

Greetings after a long but not-so-quiet Pi Day “off-season”! It’s been quite a year, and there are many new stories to tell about the people and particulars of Pi. I hope to impart each of them to you in greater depth here at TeachPi.org soon, but just to share a taste of what’s bee...
