Are You Going to Celebrate Pi Day?

Pi DayA few weeks ago I wrote about average holiday cards. I suggested that companies should create their own holiday to stand out and do something different or dare I say remarkable.  Well next week we are going to have some fun.  March 14 is Pi day and we are celebrating all things math.  Keep in mind this is an education company so this works for us but if you can get creative with your business there is no reason not to have a Pi party of your own.

Maybe serve pie at all your showings this week. Or give pies out at your closings.  I am sure you will find something interesting to do and have people thinking WOW, this is a fun person to work with...

What is Pi Day?

Pi Day means that 3/14 is the day when people the world round (some people, anyway) celebrate the invention of that wonderful number, 3.14, known as Pi. (Actually, you can roll Pi out to 3.141593 and then keep adding numbers infinitely to the right.)

Need a brush-up on how Pi works? We have a fun and educational explanation of Pi (and our Pi Day promotional offer) on the StraighterLine Blog.

Let me know what you think about this approach to educational marketing.

Oh and if you are in the area (N. NJ) give me a buzz and I will treat you to some pie.

That is certainly very clever. I wonder how much math I'll do on 3.14?

Well to find the area of your banana cream pie, you would be incomplete if you just used Pi x R2, as this would just give you the surface area.  So your formula for the complete area of the pie would likely have to be something like: pi X R2 X D, the 'D' equalling 'Depth'.  Of course that is assuming your pie pan was a true and complete cylinder, with a perpendicular ring to the surface area, and not tapered, right?

If it were tapered, you might have to calculate the surface area of the bottom of the pie pan, and then with a difference ratio between the two... then my algebra and geometry gets fuzzy...

@Melissa - don't worry about doing math just enjoy some Pi...

@Michael - I am more of an apple fan but you do raise some good points.  We might need to bring out the geometry books to solve this mystery.

This reminds me of my math teacher in high school.  He could recite Pi out to some extremely high figure after the decimal.  He was always practicing to take it further and further.  I bet he was a real hit at cocktail parties.

This is great. I'm going to cook up something special for my kids to do so we can have fun with math. :-)

@CTS I can't wait to see the pictures.  Knowing you and your kids I see pies in the face coming.
