March Mathness for Numbers Nerds

If March isn’t Mathematician’s Month, then it should be. Especially this year.

  • Today is Square Root Day. 3/3/09  (3 is the square root of nine.) Square Root Day only happens nine times a century.
  • March 14 is Pi Day. 3/14. However, since only techno-geeks write the date like this 3.14, Pi. 3/14 is actually .2142857. 3 divided by 14. I think Pi Day should really be 2/14/2857. Now that would be a party.  BTW: Pi approximation day is July 22, again stretching credibility. 22/7 is approximately Pi.

Basically these are Sloppy Rebel Mathematician Holidays. Close enough to party, but not accurate enough to get you published.

  1. LOL, I love your title! Maybe this “holiday” is on one of those fun calendars that list every holiday throughout the year–any excuse to party though, right? 🙂

  2. Ben loves Steak and a Blowjob Day. Although I don’t make him do Valentine’s Day, so technically he isn’t entitled. But I also enjoy steaks and BJs.

    I also love Pi. I’m such a geek that some friends and I started a Pi fan club in college and had Pi t-shirts.
