Pi Day's Google Doodle, how to celebrate the mathematics holiday

Pi Day Google doodle Google Doodle marks 30th year of Pi Day, the date that takes its digits from mathematics constant pi

This year Google chose to mark the 30th occurrence of this event with a nod to "the number's delicious sounding name". As for the actual first calculation of 3.14, that's largely attributed to Archimedes, the Greek mathematician and astronomer who lived in the third century B.C.

Pi is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of any circle in a Euclidean space, and the symbol of Pi (π) was first proposed in 1706 by the mathematician William Jones.

Pi Day is an official celebration of the mathematical constant π, also represented by the number 3.14.

The letters making up "Google" are abstractly spelled out on the home page with the ingredients and the pie itself, and they also write out the equation circumference divided by diameter equals pi.

The International Pi Day is celebrated today, March 14th, the same day when, unfortunately, Stephan Hawking died.

In geometry, "Pi" plays an important constant in finding out the area of a circle.

Pi Day was first recognised 30 years ago back in 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw, according to Google. Interestingly, Albert Einstein's birth anniversary falls on March 14, which is also celebrated at Princeton by organising an annual Einstein look-alike contest. Because it is an irrational number, it has an infinite number of decimals, but it's most often noted as 3.14 - its first three digits. The challenge is in its fifth year, and features mathematical problems that can be solved using Pi. While MIT always posts its application decision letters online specifically on this date at 6.28 pm to honour the rival numbers pi and tau equally, Princeton hosts pie eating contests.
