Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern.

Pi Approximation Day is observed on July 22 (22/7 in the day/month date format), since the fraction  22⁄7 is a common approximation of π, which is accurate to two decimal places and dates from Archimedes.
