Happy Pi Day Everyone!
Today, March 14th, we are celebrating National Pi day! It is a day where we math lovers celebrate all things math and Pi related.
But what exactly is Pi? According to PiDay.org (www.piday.org) pi is defined as: “one of the most well-known mathematical constants, is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. For any circle, the distance around the edge is a little more than three times the distance across.”
We here at the North Bergen Public Library thought it would be fun to celebrate this unique day by offering a fun, math-fill booklist for children of all ages.
