Pi, as you know, is the ratio of the circumference of any circle to the diameter of that circle. Regardless of the circle’s size, this ratio will always equal pi. In decimal form, the value of pi is approximately 3.14. In USA, the restaurants give free meat pie to their customers in the 14th of March, which is Einstein’s birthday, to celebrate Pi-Day. For the Importance of Pi, I decided to turn a 3D Pi sign.

Great job, but I thought it was a Pi Plate (Pie Plate). And where in the USA are they handing out free meat pies? I haven’t heard that one and I love meat pies. Some restaurants in my area offer free pieces of pie as dessert with purchase of a meal (restrictions apply, while supplies last, only at participating locations, see restaurant for details…) Thanks for posting (and making me smile).

I live in the Phoenix area and Pi day started slowly, it it now gets mainstream media coverage- restaurants and ect… promote a free slice of pie on March 14- It is also popular for math teachers to celebrate in their classroom for PiDay= sudents bring in pies and so on.

I’ve only ever seen pi-day celebrated at universities. Where are these restaurants giving away pie on pi-day?

I live in Australia, I don’t know where about you get free pie but I I know it’s only one day a year March 14 and I suppose all restaurants that sell them.
