What is Pi Day?

The maths event celebrates π, the term used to describe the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, commonly shortened to 3.14159.

It has been traced back to Larry Shaw, a physicist who is believed to have held the first ever Pi Day celebration in 1988.

When is Pi Day celebrated?
Every year, Pi Day is observed on March 14.

The event falls on this specific date because the first three significant digits of π are 3, 1 and 4.
