What do Pi and Einstein have in common-beyond being revered by smarty pants around the world?
Pi and Einstein share a holiday: March 14. Pi Day is the annual celebration of the mathematical constant pi:
Pi is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant-the ratio of circumference of a circle to its diameter: which is approximately 3.14…………………….
And it is Albert Einstein’s birthday!. He was born in Germany March 14, 1879. Einstein, best know for this equation, dubbed “the world’s most famous equation E=mc2”
Here’s how those of us at Call Me Sister plan to honor Albert’s birthday and Pi:

More heady sisters will see how many digits they can memorize past 3.14*
*Quote from a true mathematician: “In recent years, Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits past its decimal. Only 39 digits past the decimal are needed to accurately calculate the spherical volume of our entire universe, but because of Pi’s infinite & patternless nature, it’s a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.”
