Happy Pi Day! #math #constant

If it’s March 14th, it must be Pi Day!

These first photos don’t have much to do with it being Pi Day but follow along with my ‘twisted’ logic, and you’ll see where I’m going with this.

On a trip to the UK in 2005, we travelled through Wales and came along this chambered tomb. Those are some huge boulders, I can tell you. See anything looking a little pi-ish?

Why don’t I outline what I see as our mathematical friend Pi in the picture? Does this make it easier to pick out our little buddy?

And finally, filled in, well sort of. See it better now?

and finally Pi itself.

I made this short video so you can see the transition from the first picture to the last.

Pi Day

So enjoy the day and when you think of it, remember our little friend 3.14159.
