**Happy Pi Day!**

RightStart Math hopes you have fun activities planned to celebrate Pi Day (March 14^{th}).

Here are some interesting facts about the number pi:

- Pi is a very old number used by Egyptians and Babylonians more than 4000 years ago.
- There is no end in sight. So far, it has been calculated out to 22 trillion digits.
- For centuries, mathematicians have been looking for a pattern within this unique decimal number, but so far, none have been found.
- The number 123456 is not found in the first million decimal digits
- In 1706, mathematician William Jones began calling this number pi. Until then, this was called, “the quantity which when the diameter is multiplied by it, yields the circumference.”
- And finally, in March of 2015, Rajveer Meena, a 21-year old student, recited pi to 70,000 decimal places.
