A few weeks ago we told you more about each of the employee-led committees at ISE. One of our favorite events hosted by the Fun Committee, is our annual Pi Day Celebration on 3/14. Today we celebrate mathematicians around the world by eating pie. Who doesn't love pie?!?!
For those that are not in the math geek loop, according to Wikipedia:
Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the month/day date format) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.
Each year we vote for our top three favorite homemade pies. This year's selection consisted of Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter, Mint Oreo, Banana Cream, Turtle Pumpkin, Almond Oatmeal Cheesecake, and Apple Pie. Yes, I sampled each one, and they were all amazing! After having to go back a few times to verify my rankings, I voted for my top three. And the winning pie was.... Apple!
Now back to my annual sugar-coma filled afternoon. But first, a joke to leave you with…
Mathematician: “Pi r squared"
Baker: ”No! Pies are round, cakes are square!"
