Celebrating Pi Day

The irrational number "Pi" is celebrated every March 14th (3/14) as a day to focus on math education here in Rochester and around the world.

The University of Rochester has a full slate of events scheduled today on campus.

NPR looked at the sweeter side of Pi day with a focus on the art of baking pies, which of course are circular and thus rely on pi for their dimensions.

Thanks also to NPR for tipping us off to the video below by musician Michael John Blake who translated pi into music.
